HASH(0xa6bbb354) out of 5 stars A stunning performance Feb. 7 2007
By Louise - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an absolutely stunning performance of some of the very greatest music ever written for guitar. Paganini was a virtuoso guitarist but is best remembered for his performances on and compositions for violin. I can't figure out why his guitar music and reputation did not survive equally well. Cuban guitarist Marco Tamayo gives a flawless performance here. I've listened to this disc many times and used most of it on my radio program on WHRO in Norfolk. Top of the line addition to any classical guitar afficianado's collection.

HASH(0xa6bbb3a8) out of 5 stars Stunning July 22 2008
By David Saemann - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Marco Tamayo is a splendid guitarist. I have his Guitar Music of Cuba album, which I enjoy as well as this Paganini CD. The music here is altogether winning. Tamayo plays the Grand Sonata with elegance and fluid technique. It's the sort of work that benefits from a performer who can match sensitivity with grandeur, and Tamayo has that knack. Most of the shorter works on this CD are salon music of varying types. They require a sense of style more than spellbinding finger work, and in Tamayo's hands they pass very sweetly. The last two Caprices, from the famous set for the violin, are finger breakers on the guitar. Listening to Tamayo, you wonder how it is possible for anyone to play them on the guitar, let alone this well. The sound engineering is good, too. All in all, a welcome CD of often unusual repertoire that deserves a hearing.

HASH(0xa6bbb684) out of 5 stars Tamayo's Soul Nov. 27 2008
By Colton Williams - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Marco Tamayo plays these beautiful Paganini guitar works with such grace and moving deftness. I cannot seem to get tired of this record. Certain tracks, even after months of repeated listening, seem to yank tears out of my eyes. Tamayo's brilliant phrasing and crystal understanding of these works provide me constant pleasure, whether I'm relaxing on my lunch break at work or following along with him on the scores at home. Simply, utterly, inspiring. It is a pleasure to write these words about what I consider to be lovely playing. Soulful. It makes me smile to think of Tamayo and Norbert Kraft (the producer; also a brilliant player) recording these works. I hope they were as satisfied as i continue to be.

Paganini lovers are going to like this one. Great selections and the playing is outstanding. Great price also.
Paganini wrote some of the most intricately difficult music ever. Tamayo captures it remarkably. The music is not just difficult for difficult sake -it has an emotional force that is clearly one of a kind. Bravo!
HASH(0xa6bbb468) out of 5 stars Nicolo Paganini: Music's First Superstar.. Nov. 20 2010
By Michael P. Naughton - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Paganini's music and technique is spellbinding. His life even more intriguing... he was said to be music's first "superstar" according to Colin Copper who wrote the liner notes to this CD. There were rumors of supernatural powers and a pact with the devil due to his gifted, inimitable ability. He is man, myth and legend.

Most of us are well acquainted with him as a violinist, but he also excelled as well as a guitarist, and it was perhaps, his ambivalence and conflict with this instrument, that may have forced him to squeeze the most out of the guitar... He played it like no other. As with his violin, he took an anomalous, unconventional approach.

As a classical guitarist, I still struggle with Caprice 24 and find this piece the ultimate taskmaster and high-wire act, if you will, for a skilled classical guitarist.

Cuban born guitarist Marco Tamayo plays with fervor, precision and passion on each challenging piece.

Again, as a bonus, excellent liner notes by Colin Cooper are included.
