Smaro Gregoriadou - A Healing Fire is brilliant and intense / Planet Hugill

Bookmark and Share

Robert Hugill writes......"Her account of the [J.S. Bach Sonata‘s] opening ‘Grave' is strong and firm, whilst the ‘Fuga' is crisp, firm and quite steady with Gregoriadou making explicit what often has to be left implicit in Bach's original. The ‘Andante' is firmly rhythmic with a strong emphasis on the repeated accompanying notes. The concluding ‘Allegro' is brilliant and idiomatically guitar sounding. … the remainder of the disc…is brilliant and intense … Gregoriadou is clearly a guitarist who, rather than accept the instrument's limitations and repertoire, seems to be constantly questing for new ways of performing and new repertoire. This disc offers new ways of looking at existing repertoire alongside lesser known pieces."
