Guitar Romance is a unique and important recording. Unique in that the repertoire is varied, i.e. ranging from the classical music of John Williams, Ennio Morricone and Bill Conte, amongst others. It is important because it's varied content allows it to reach a wider audience than a standard classical album.


The music is presented in such a way as to show the guitar in its original form, i.e. the Sojo and Ponce pieces along with solo arrangements of Grainger, Bach, Falla, Schumann and Granados. Other solos include first recorded arrangements by Loewe (On the Street Where You Live) and John Williams (Theme from Schindler's List)...
