Recordings from the past

I've been taking a bit of a sabbatical from my internet postings which will be over soon. In the meantime, I've decided to put up some live recordings from the past not known to the general public (nor to most who know me personally). These recordings are from 1997 with the fantastic guitarist, Antigoni Goni. For those that don't know Antigoni, I highly recommend getting her recordings. I became friends with Antigoni at Juilliard and we formed a brief duo during the years of 1996-1998. The duo began by concentrating on the Spanish Nationalists - Albeniz, Granados, and De Falla, and using the arrangements of the old guitar masters - primarily Miguel Llobet and Emilio Pujol. Evocation by Albeniz as arranged by Llobet is one of the most colorful guitar arrangements I've had the pleasure to perform. Just studying the score is a complete lesson in guitar orchestration. More can be found at my youtube site

Thanks for posting these. You two made a wonderful duo -- not to mention considering your phenomenal playing, historic.

BTW, I noticed that sellers at Amazon are asking $219.99 for EvocaciĆ³n.

Time for a reunion? :D

Carlos Bonell is simply jumping on the Beatles bandwagon. Mr Bonell's playing is weak and his arrangements of the Beatles songs are poorly structured and ineffective. He needs to stop acting like a clown.
