(5 out of 5 stars)

"I, too, bought this album specifically to hear the Glass piece. I had no idea the rest of the album would be such a treat! Leisner makes "Fourth Knee Play" sound as though it was originally written for the guitar, and there isn't a single bad cut on this album. If you buy this one, don't overlook the liner notes. What's really important about this album is that all of the composers are 20th century composers, and Leisner knew all of them personally, save for one. He explains, for instance, that he met Philip Glass on the subway. Lastly, be sure to listen for the most important thing about this album- if you play it loudly enough, and listen very closely, you can hear the guitar's repertoire expanding."
