Press review

Timo Korhonen, dedicatee of the concerto, is resourceful, with a magisterial technique, and here wedded to Brouwer's stylistic manner. The recording is up to Ondine's usual high standards.
Christopher Williams, Fanfare Magazine, January/February 2003

The performances from soloist and orchestra are consistently splendid, and the recording quality is outstanding.

Steven Rings, American Record Guide, September/October 2002

Timo Korhonen is a superb guitarist who takes everything in his clean-fingered stride. The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra shares his zest, the recording is first-class.

John Duarte, Gramophone, May 2002

I doubt that there's a better played, better recorded, more musically varied and appealing guitar and orchestra disc in the catalog. Magnificent!
David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com, April 2002, Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10

This recording further contains two transcriptions by Brouwer: of Albeniz's Iberia Suite and of seven Beatles tunes.

This CD won a Cannes Classical Award in 2003, in the category 'Solo with Orchestra'.
