From the electric passion of flamenco to the haunting Cavatina from The Deer Hunter, the guitar touches us in a way no other instrument can. This double album of classic guitar music, both original compositions and arrangements by some of the world's finest guitar virtuosi, reveals the many sides of the guitar's personality. Supremely elegant or steamily sensual, flamboyantly virtuosic or eloquently lyrical, The Essential Guitar is essential listening.
