Santiago de Murcia - William Carter - Hi-Fi & Musik


01 August 2007
Hi-Fi & Musik
Stig Jacobsson
5 Stars

För kännarna av gitarrmusik är Santiago de Murcia (1682 - 1732) ett känt och aktat namn, och han borde sannerligen vara det för fler. I texthäftet kallas han den verklige giganten inom spansk barockgitarr. Hans storhet kommer onekligen fram i den här skivan, och William Carter har på sin barockgitarr visat sin förmåga att tolka dessa välformade pärlor på ett övertygande sätt. Vårdat och kärleksfullt ger han musiken guldkant. Femton korta mästerverk ryms inom skivans sextio minuter, som vanligt när det gäller Linn Records: På en SACD-hybrid, med såväl CD-stereo som 2- och 5.1 - kanalsmixad SACD.
