An eminent display of guitar repertoire mastery
11/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Norbert gives us a fine selection of favorites performed with consummate mastery of the instrument recorded here, in what must be close to acoustic heaven, the St. John Chrysostom Church, Newmarket, Canada. For quality of tone and dynamic phrasing Kraft is undoubtedly in the top echelon of performers. From the lilting, romantic barcarole Julia Florida of Barrios, to the strident energy and passion of Danza Espanola No. 5 by Granados, Norbert treats us to a dynamic journey of sonorous emotions. For the music lover, this recording offers a great introduction to the world of the Spanish guitar, but for the guitar enthusiast, an array of well-polished musical gems to be inspired by and finally, in the challenging preludes of Villa-Lobos, a level of mastery which few concert guitarists have attained and that mere mortals can only marvel at. Enjoy this fine recording, there is no better value available on CD today!"
