Carl Herring’s reading is well-considered throughout. The pace of both the first movement (Allegretto) and last (Rondo) seem just right. Melodic lines are played with lovely cantabile and again the Lento is persuasive. The playing is a little more flexible than on some versions - Herring eases forward movement at times, and is thus able to reveal the eloquence of the musical language. This CD is an interesting programme, also including compositions by Turina, Rodrigo, Bach and Tippett.

Performed by Carl Herring (guitar)
