“an outstanding production for the interest of the music, and for the superb quality of both playing and recording. Manuel Ponce’s concerto for Segovia has symphonic leanings … and southerly leanings, extending to authentic native tunes and sultry guitar rhythms. The combination is fascinating … Rodrigo’s Fantasia benefits from the tone-colour of the guitar, enhanced further by this particularly good recording … Segovia ensures for posterity … his superlative playing” - Gramophone
