Catalogue Number: 11Q075
Description: OK, the Brouwer isn't really rare and the Villa-Lobos positively standard repertoire but it's a nice program and the Koshkin is a first recording. Written for the soloist here, it's a consistently entertaining full-scale piece (three movements and 29 minutes) and it's Russian sensibility is exactly the sort of thing you never hear in the genre of the guitar concerto. Stein-Erik Olsen (guitar), Academy of St Martin in the Fields; Terje Mikkelsen.
