Description
Rapturously beautiful themes from some of the best loved operas of Giaochino Rossini (Semiramide and Cenerentola), Giuseppe Verdi (La Traviata, Rigoletto, and II Trovatore), and Vincenzo Bellini (La Sonnambula) are given a sensitive treatment in these rarely performed solo guitar arrangements by Mauro Giuliani (1781–1829) and Johann Mertz (1806–56). Before the gramophone, such adaptations were pervasive, whether for piano, guitar, flute, or chamber ensemble. Jerry Willard plays a lovely 19th-century instrument by René Francois Lacôte.

"It is apparent with every note that Willard has spent considerable time studying the operas in order to get the phrasing as nuanced as possible. To make things even more enjoyable, he performs the entire disc on an 1820 René Francois Lacôte guitar. In the early 1800s Lacôte was one of the great makers ... so more of his instruments have withstood the ravages of time."—Soundboard
