    Christopher Parkening has long been recognized as among the world's elite classical guitarists. This DVD contains 1970s footage of a young Parkening in concert. The song selections range from a Rodrigo concerto to etudes by Sor. Parkening showcases his superb technique and world-renowned musicality, showing his adaptability with...

    almost every style of classical music, from Renaissance to Modern. This one is not your cliche concert documentary DVD. This is very well done, and is well put together. As a special bonus, archival footage of Andres Segovia in concert is included. This footage shows that Segovia's passion for his music has almost no equal among modern performers. Indeed, his musicianship and performance ease shine out. If you enjoy hearing Christopher Parkening in concert or in albums, you will greatly enjoy seeing him perform live from the 1970s. It is always a pleasure to experience great music performed by a great artist.
