This set, the complete works for two guitars by Castelnuovo‐Tedesco, contains one of the most ambitious, innovating and audacious cycles of the entire guitar literature: ‘Les Guitares bien tempérées’. These works, as already hinted by its title, are inspired by the great keyboard cycle ‘Das Wolhtemperierte Clavier’ by Johann Sebastian Bach, presenting Preludes and Fugues in all 24 keys (both major and minor). A tour de force of contrapuntal ingenuity, composed with great skill and a warm feeling heart.

Also included are the Sonatina Canonica (also of great contrapuntal invention), and the touching Fuga Elegiaca, the composer’s last piece and bittersweet farewell.

Superbly played by one of the world’s best guitar duos, the Pace Poli Cappelli Duo, who have a string of international prizes to their name.
