David Starobin, guitar
This compilation includes three mini guitar concerti- pieces that guitar afficionados will be delighted to have in their collections. Guitar Concertante showcases a fascinatingly wide range of expression- from George Crumb's haunting and surreal Quest, to the witty and brilliant Psalmodies by the Dane, Poul Ruders, to Lennon's romantic gypsy fantasy, Zingari.
Called by The New York Times, "This country's pre-eminent interpreter of contemporary guitar works", David Starobin is the only guitarist ever to have been awarded Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Career Prize. Guitar Concertante presents three major works composed for Starobin during the past decade.
“This is a remarkable and magnificently recorded disc, nothing less than a milestone in the progress of the twentieth-century guitar.” - Gramophone
