Editors' Notes The young French guitarist gives a superb performance of Rodrigo’s most famous work, Concierto de Arunjuez—easily the most popular guitar concerto ever written. Partnered with palpable sympathy and imagination by Ben Glassberg and the Toulouse orchestra, Garcia brings an approach that feels almost improvised, filled with freshness and spontaneity. It really evokes a first encounter. Cleverly, Garcia programmes some solo works by Robert de Visée (c. 1655-1733) alongside Alexandre Tansman’s neoclassical Musique de cour d’après Robert de Visée, beautifully characterised and stylishly accompanied. Some solos by Regino Sainz de la Maza complete an absorbing album by this fine young player.
