“Yepes’ cadenza is as clean and bright as a new pin, and his rapid repeated-note finish is fantastic.”

“I am coming to regard the Fantasia para un gentilhombre with its gracious nobility and baroque feeling as a masterpiece to match the more famous Concierto de Aranjuez.”

“Zabaleta plays most beautifully and the recording is immaculate.” - Gramophone
