Classical guitar at it's best

John Williams plays baroque favorites on this album expertly and well. Williams’ guitar playing reveals the art of a master at his craft. The first cut by Telemann presents the music as played by Williams in a favorable light, and the number is artfully played. The second number on the album by Scarlatti appears in my music library as a sonata played by Vladimir Horowitz at the piano. Williams performs the number here with skill and depth. The sound quality of this album is second to none. I highly recommend this album to anyone wanting a quality presentation of classical guitar playing at its very best.
