Music of Albéniz, Villa-Lobos, Ponce, Tárrega, Mudarra, Lauro, Tórroba, and Sor is featured on this solo recording, one of Parkening’s earliest. Even at the outset of his career, Parkening displays the virtuosity that will cause legendary guitarist Andrés Segovia to proclaim that “Christopher Parkening is one of the most brilliant guitarists on the world.”
