The brilliant young guitarist Kyuhee Park, winner of the 2010 Agustín Barrios and 2012 Alhambra International Guitar competitions, has crafted a recital that focuses on a sequence of sonatas and a quartet of evocative character pieces. The three Scarlatti sonatas exude dance, lyricism and virtuosity respectively, whilst Anton Diabelliâs engaging Sonata in A, heard in Julian Breamâs arrangement, is one of the relatively few extended guitar works of the Classical period. Lennox Berkeleyâs Sonatina is both elegant and complex. After Malatsâ popular encore piece Serenata Española and Barriosâ sublime Un Sueño en la Floresta and Chopin-inspired Vals, the recital concludes with Lopezâs richly varied Impresiones y paisajes, inspired by Lorcaâs first book.
