DCD 042 - Saudade and César

This program we feature three tracks from Con Brio recording's latest release. "Saudade" is the debut album of Stephen Reck, an up-and-coming classical guitarist from Ireland. It's a compelling collection of guitar works, and includes some under-recorded selections that work quite well.

We fill out the program by revisiting the first recording from our own label, DCD Records. James Higdon performs on the Helmut Wolff et associes organ at the Bales Organ Recital Hall at Kansas University. It's been a while since I've listened to the disc, but it holds up very well (even if I was the producer).

Listen to the podcast and judge for yourself!
