Let me start saying that I am Venezuelan and I have had the chance to see many guitar players perform many of the songs selected in this CD. I can honestly say that the performaces presented by John Williams rank among the best ones I have listen in a long time. The song arragements were done by another giant of the classical guitar, Alirio Diaz, a venezuelan guitarrist that has taken classical guitar music to a higher level. The result is a recording full of live and emotion, as well as, technical mastery. This a true guitar document that presents Venezuela's musical legacy to the guitar world. I just hope that Mr Williams is willing to do another CD with more of this music.

Hi classical guitar fans. This is the first time I've decided to write a few words for Amazon. This recording has moved me to add a few words to the roster.
I would like to convey something that perhaps is missing from the other commentary. This album rises above the usual "good recording", by Mr. Williams. We have here a CD that is the rare combination of all the right elements that combine to make it into the most hoped for "favorite record" status.
It is that good! I sensed it right away when I played it for the first time through. Every song is a gem, perfectly played and follows in the 'right' order. The producers have very cleverly managed to time the space between the tracks to be very minute, and so the music flows wonderfully from one song to the next.
Both my mother and father are in love with this CD as much as I am! They play it over and over. My mother (who is 70) counts it as one of her favorite recordings of all time.
Folks, this is truly a winner.

At first I thought about giving this CD a strong four or four-and-a-half star rating. I hesitate to give any CD a five rating, which to me implies perfection. However, I give this CD a five-star rating because it is outstanding when compared to most.
This CD has lots of variety, with the expected high quality of Williams' playing and an even better than expected quality of sound recording. I do prefer Sharon Isbin's slightly more expressive and elegant rendition of "Virgilio," and David Burgess's dazzling and mesmerizing recording of "Seis por Derecho." Nevertheless, Williams' is masterful at bringing out the intricate rhythms and wonderful melodies of both these and the rest on this CD.
The big bonus of this CD consists of the four pieces in which Williams is accompanied by Alfonso Montes on the cuatro, Venezuela's national instrument. The addition of the cuatro, which mainly serves as a kind of four-stringed rhythm guitar, pumps energy and excitement into a couple of works by Antonio Lauro and other Venezuelan composers. It's hard to keep your head from bobbing and feet from tapping to the beat of these gems.
Lauro is one of my favorite composers; Williams is definitely my favorite guitarist. Lauro alone plus Williams equals five stars.

I happened upon this cd the other day and had to do a triple take before realizing it was an entirely new recording with many peices I'd never heard. I think John Williams has done a wonderful job of reaching out further than the typical guitar "master" would, he did the Barrios recording, then an album either by Greek composers or inspired by Greece (the pieces by Satie were based on Greek characters etc.) and then the Magic Box (African folk). I keep wondering when he'll team up with Paco Pena or Paco de Lucia or even Gerardo Nunez for a flamenco collaboration. Or delve into a Russian folk setting, that might be fun. There's so much opportunity for the broadening of the spectrum when it comes to the indigineous folk music of different contries. I'm so glad to see Williams taking the time to explore. Excellent, excellent album.

If you like both beautiful melody and rhythm of the Latin American sort, you will like this recording. If you like solo classical guitar of the supremely virtuosic sort, add that into the equation (plus a few excellent duets). These pieces are played with an uncanny rhythmic precision that does not sound mechanical. They are played elegantly, eloquently and with feeling neither overstated nor understated. Bear with me, because it is impossible to do justice to this beautiful recording with mere words. It is among my favorite recordings of all time - I never tire of listening to it.

John Williams is an exceptional classical guitarist and his exploration of the guitar music of Venezuela is a winner. Most of the work is for solo guitar with a few duets. The precision and mastery of his playing is almost beyond belief. The recording is extremely clear, capturing all the warmth of the instrument. Much of the music is based on Venezualian dance form and the booklet inside the CD explains this in detail. Williams reminds me of the best anthropologists, discovering and conveying unknown worlds with precision, honesty, mastery, allowing the work to speak for itself. It is a beautiful collection.

I discovered this record by chance. I had followed the work of John Williams for some time, but I never suspected that he had recorded Venezuelan music. John Willimas not just plays Venezulean music superbly but also catches the genuine spirit of it in all its sense.
If you like Venezuelan music this is definitely a jewel you must have. And If you haven't listened to it before I can't imagine a better way to be introduced to it.
