Crystal-beautiful classical guitar music on Philips label, and if I read the booklet correctly, the performers are The Romeros. The content reads like a serious best-loved list of classical guitar compositions in the Spanish tradition, and the Bizet "Carmen" suite is not to be missed. If you know The Romeros, you will appreciate this arrangement, a complex all-guitar ensemble, actually conveying the entire orchestral music of Bizet's opera. Wonderful
This has to be an early entry in the then-new "Compact Disc" technology because the CD title does not really reflect anything about the classical-guitar content, but does include an array of Audio Test Signals for the "high tech" audiophile. Note also the urgently dramatic soound of Flamenco dance by Paco Romero.
A beautiful, carefully made "audiophile" recoding, probably from 1990. Very worthwhile.
