Which of the major studies for guitar should be chosen for a selection with an overall duration of slightly under 80 minutes? Although the 24 Caprices by Nicolo Paganini were not originally written for the guitar, three of these pieces have been included in this recording as they test the borderlines of numerous aspects of guitar technique.

In contrast, the English impressionist Allan Willcocks (1869-1956) is a rather unknown composer whose complete 12 studies have never before been recorded on CD. The collection of studies by Matteo Carcassi (1792-1853) effectively represents the foundation for the guitarist‘s training.

The CD culminates with the famous study cycle by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959): a work of equal significance for guitarists as Chopin’s Studies for pianists.
