Swiss guitarist Christoph Denoth is considered one of the foremost guitarists of the younger generation, much praised for his rich sound and musical expression. For this new recording from Abbey Road he joins the London Symphony Orchestra under Jesus Lopez Cobos to perform three much loved works for guitar and orchestra – Rodridgo’s much loved Concierto de Aranjuez, the Nocturnos de Andalucia by Lorenza Palomo, and a new orchestral arrangement by Denoth of Joaquin Malats’ Serenata Espanola.
★★★★★ Throughout Denoth impresses both with his technique, but also with the engaging way he plays the music…Whilst the Rodrigo is a lovely, highly recommendable performance, it is the Palomo which makes this disc special. I do hope that the performance makes more guitarists take up this fascinating work – Planet Hugill
It’s attractive, without ever being too comfortable, and backward looking. It’s very cleverly scored for large orchestra, and will give much pleasure – Classic FM
Throughout, Denoth again shows himself to be a thoughtful musician of considerable taste and technical prowess – Gramophone
Much praised for his rich sound and music expression, [Denoth] brings all his talent to bear on much-loved works for guitar and orchestra – The Northern Echo
