This album by guitarist Marius Gundersen has very special meaning to me. In addition to being the first time an artist dedicates an entire album to my work, Marius is an excellent interpreter. His technique and musical sensibility make these pieces; originally written for solo guitar, gain even more quality and expression, become more impactful and attractive! Marius Gundersen comprehends in a particular and profound way the essence of Brazilian music that is embedded in the repertoire he has chosen. It is quite difficult to remain faithful to the cultural aspects of another country, from another continent, far from our own musical universe. I am very impressed with the way Marius approaches these nuances, magnifying the value of the work through his interpretation. Undoubtedly this album will be a reference for any guitarist, from any part of the world, who might want to record these pieces. Thank you, Marius, for this excellent performance!
