“Reverie”: Classical-Romantic Music for Guitar

In this collection of pieces from the early 19th century, Dale Kavanagh presents virtuosic works from one of the richest periods in the guitar. Three of the composers featured–Mauro Giuliani, Guilio Regondi, Nicol√≥ Paganini represent the romantic tradition of the instrument. The longer works, Regondi’s “Reverie” and Giuliani’s “Grand Overture”Op.61, demonstrates how large in scope guitar of this period could be. Kavanagh’s playing is impressive and at times pianistic in the strength of her attack and fullness of her sound. (www.haenssler-classic.de)
