Comments:Tony Perris said:

The Great Recordings ~ By America's Preeminent Guitar Virtuoso. Parkening studied under Segovia who called him one of the world's greatest classical guitarists. A few original Parkening tracks on this volume. Mostly Bach and Mozart with a suprise or two like the Cuban Lullaby
