From the back cover:
Many consider the Paraguayan-born Barrios to be the greatest guitarist composer of all time. Yet his music lay undiscovered and unappreciated until the mid-1970 when comprehensive editions of his music appeared. Today his music is preformed by major concert artists and is appreciated by audiences world wide. Many of the works on this recording, beginning with the Brazilian folk-inspired 'Maxixe', are virtuoso displays of technical prowess and compositional skill. Other works, for example 'Madrigal-Gavota' and 'the Vals, Op.8 No.4 (Vals Brillante)', illustrate the widely-traveled composer's fondness for mixing harmonic forms and ideas from different musical periods, cultures and countries.

Recorded at St. John Chrysostom Church, Newmarket, Ontario, Canada from 1st to 5th April, 1999. Guitar by José Romanillos, 1989. Producer and Editor: Bonnie Silver.
