Performed by Andrew LaFreniere, guitar Accompaniment: Stuttgart Festival Orchestra Conductor: Emil Kahn Here is a beautiful collection of shorter pieces for guitar and orchestra. Gorgeously orchestrated to take full advantage of the guitar's unique qualities when set against an orchestral background, these pieces are a joy to play. This album makes a perfect choice for the early intermediate player who wants to advance technique in an orchestral setting. Never has the guitar been this much fun! Includes a high-quality printed solo part and a compact disc containing a complete performance with soloist; then a second version with the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
