Lately i have really been into playing guitar music for our 11 month old twins as a way to gently start exposing them to classical music. As I looked for SACD music to play, i was surprised at the lack of music available. I have all the Bream / Parkening / Romero / Williams you can get, but something recording in the last couple of years would be nice (and not Bach..i have an overdose of that).

Bissie, there is a great guitarist on youtube named Per-Olov Kindgren you might want to get to know if you have any interest in this genre.

Just type in Los Angeles Guitar Quartet on this site and there are four (4) available mch DSD~recorded titles all from Telarc.

I especially love the title SPIN. They are quite virtuoistic and the sound is superb. Available from Amazon US for under $9!

Also, David Russell: Art Of The Guitar also from Telarc.

I would second the LAGQ and add the Katona Twin recordings.

Also, check these out as well

Villa-Lobos Villa-Lobos: Complete Works for Guitar - Frank Bungarten
David Russel David Russell: Art of the Guitar

I also added David Russell .......... but the Katona Twins are special.........in total agreement!

Also under Opus 3: A Unique classical guitar collection (also in mch).

I have the David Russell SACD and searching Villa-Lobos as a composer for the etudes is what prompted me to start the post as Frank Bungarten was the only title out there. 4 people recommended it, but no one has reviewed it so it leaves me with an unknown artist on a second tier label (no offense intended) with no reviews here or on Amazon. Very risky investment i would say.

George Gulyas Spanish recital on Proprius is really excellent.

Although there is one Bach piece (the Chaconne in D Minor), I strongly recommend Petri Kumela's recital. Change is Gonna Come - Petri Kumela Stephen Marchionda's Scarlatti disc is excellent, too. /showthread/46159//y?page=first

Look no further. You can't do better than these two Linn SACDs:

Le Calme - Fernando Sor Late Works - William Carter

Sor: Early Works - William Carter

Guitarist William Carter plays with his fingertips rather than fingernails, for a softer attack on the strings. Music that is both engaging and restful; perfect for (very) young listeners!

Le Calme - Fernando Sor Late Works - William Carter would be my pick, it is definitely a better recording and I also prefer the music.

Awesome, go preview it on iTunes or Amazon or something

Gontiti: Super Best 2001-2006

and they don't make shirts like this anymore;

Blonde on the Rocks - Shoji Yokouchi Quartet

and can you really have too much Bach?

Georg Gulyás plays Bach

or schubert?

Schubert: Arrangements - Mats Bergström

there is also two John Mayor SACD's if your willing to pay a premium (and like him).
