Beg to differ with "Terrible"
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Quite simply put, as a guitarist Eliot Fisk is in a class by himself. He plays the instrument like no one else, can create an array of timbres, reveal the architecture of a work, and project an expressive range beyond anyone playing the instrument today. Yes, people love to hate him, and yes there are other players who make the instrument sound more "beautiful". Guess what? These debates are normal and certainly not confined to the classical quitar world. I am not surprised that a young guitarist might have problems with him, and feel it necessary to lose perspective on what makes him unique. But as someone who knows a great deal about music from the inside, I feel obligated to say that to start to question his meeting basic "standards of acceptable interpretation" is so way out of line that it is laughable. Fisk's musical training is impeccable--besides the well-known Segovia relationship, he has been a protege of the great harpsichordist and Scarlatti expert Ralph Kirkpatrick - and his intellect formidable. Here is a real musician who has earned the respect and admiration and has collaborated with some of the most revered concert artists of our time. If someone prefers another player, that is his or her perogative (Barruecco is certainly a remarkable guitarist, and has produced some important work). But Fisk is, well, Fisk. Make up your own mind. Just, please, don't miss the forest for the trees."

"If you actually think that Fisk can't play, you're nuts."

"Eliot Fisk have the talent to play the caprices (24) for solo violin, and he plays better than so many violinists. Totally a tempo with no mistakes and a brillant sound.Rate this CD with only one star is no serious, is a joke. If the reason of that is only the 5 caprice, is stupid. I recommend this CD %100"
