Gerard Abiton “Ponce – Complete Guitar Music” Brilliant Classics This 4 CD set lives up to its billing for completeness, containing composer Manuel Ponce’s most well known works, “Vals” and “Sonatina meridional” for solo guitar and “Concierto del Sur” for guitar and small orchestra, along with his earliest published work, “Tema variado y final”, his famous South American ‘hit’ song “Estrellita”, and a couple of previously unpublished preludes. As one of only a handful of early 20th century to write specifically for guitar (often at the instigation of Andres Segovia), Manuel Ponce’s music bridges the old and new worlds, incorporating dance rhythms and folk melodies from his native Mexico, with influences ranging from the Baroque and romanticism to modernism. Performing music this stylistically varied, written over a period of nearly three decades, requires sympathy, understanding and technique. Fortunately, internationally acclaimed guitarist Gerard Abiton has all of these qualities and brings to these often challenging compositions his well-developed sense of taste and aesthetic sympathy. Required listening for guitar and composition students, “Ponce – Complete Guitar Music” by Gerard Abiton should appeal to the general listener for its sheer beauty alone. Highly recommended 9 ½ out of 10 Oscar O. Veterano
