Giulio Regondi: A 200th Birthday Bouquet; David Starobin
"The 20th century focus on the Spanish classical guitar overshadowed a rich tradition of 19th century European guitarists and luthiers. Guitars by makers like Stauffer in Vienna had a short playing scale and a quick attack well-suited to the agile technique and musicianship of such six-string virtuosi as Regondi. Starobin’s appreciation of Regondi’s artistry is, guitaristically and musicologically, a rich hommage to an under-appreciated artist of the six-string guitar."

"A child prodigy, Regondi dazzled French and British audiences with his virtuoso performances on the guitar. These exquisite performances, beautifully recorded, are a delight. A delectable recording, one that I enthusiastically recommend."
