This recital by one of the leading guitarists of the younger generation, the Croatian Petrit Ceku, begins with an ambitious transcription of one of J.S. Bach’s most demanding solo works. Studies from the nineteenth century master, Giulio Regondi, Rodrigo’s In Praise of the Guitar, an extended work of great charm and momentum in three intense movements, and Vicente Asencios’s Suite Valencia, reveal the expressive and technical heights to which the classical guitar nowadays aspires.


Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,November 2008

This young Croatian guitarist is an award winning artist with a sweet tone and a great technique and expressive palette. What makes this recording even more enjoyable is the excellent and ambitious adaptation of one of Bach's more demanding solo violin works, and the introduction of virtually unknown repertoire by composers Asencio and Regondi. In this music and even more so in Rodrigo's 'In Praise of the Guitar', Ceku asserts his place among the elite guitarists of the world. The recording (in Ontario, Canada) by Norbert Kraft is a class act in itself!

Review By David Denton, Naxos,September 2008

This is one of those exceedingly rare occasions where I have enjoyed a transcription of music by Bach, the young Kosovo-born guitarist Petrit Ceku a very special newcomer to the international scene.
