Narciso Yepes (guitar, baroque lute)


Narciso Yepes (guitar, baroque lute)


Narciso Yepes is acknowledged as one of the finest virtuoso classical guitarists of the 20th century. His playing - for which he adopted a ten- rather than six-string guitar - was characterized by incisiveness, rhythmic energy and fullness of sound.

This 20-CD original jackets collection brings together for the first time Narciso Yepes’ Complete Solo Recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, recorded between 1967 and 1989.

It includes the first international CD release of many rare recordings, as well as the first-ever CD release of Bach’s Prelude, Fugue & Allegro in E flat, BWV 998; Prelude in C minor, BWV 999; Suite for Lute in E major, BWV 1006a; Giuliani’s Sonatina in D major, Op.7 No.3; and Tarrega’s Preludes in D minor and E major.

An extensive booklet includes new liner notes by guitar expert Graham Wade in English, German, French & Spanish.

Following Narciso Yepes’ Complete Concerto Recordings, this new collection assembles a huge range of solo repertoire, from Baroque and Renaissance music to 20th-century works.

“Narciso Yepes is not only an outstanding exponent of this repertoire, he also has the rare gift of consistently creating electricity in the recording studio, and all this music springs vividly to life.” – The Penguin Guide

“... we finally have a real departure from the Segovia style of playing, not an echo.” – Musical America
