Swedish-born guitar virtuoso Johan Lofving returns to Resonus Classics to record his debut solo album with a programme of works for both solo guitar and guitar with string quartet. Joined by the Consone Quartet, and castanet player Nanako Aramaki, for Boccherini's fourth guitar quintet, Lofving presents a compelling selection of Romantic guitar repertoire framed by two fandango movements that show the influence of Spanish folk music, an idiom so intimately connected with this medium. With this recital of works from across Europe, the considerable reach and versatility of the guitar is on full display with music from the height of the instrument's popularity.
