From Claude Engel's Collection.
" For Claude Engel, writing for the classical guitar has always remained a true secret garden whose borders and wealth are still unimagined. The few recordings we have only allow us to fancy their interest. It is mainly works as yet unpublished, true treasures accumulated over decades and transcribing the composer's evolution, that will allow us to capture its full worth. The compositions for guitar of Claude Engel are interpreted internationally by concert performers of reputation such as Gregory Newton (President of the American Guitar Society - USA), Patrick Kearney, David Jacques (Canada), Birgit Schwab and Daniel Ahlert (Germany), Raùl Maldonado (France), etc... They are also taught in the Guitar school of New York (USA). "
