Top Selling Track for August – Jeff Dwarshuis’ top selling track for the month of August is “Grand Solo” and is available on CD Baby today! This is the 7th track of my recording “The Guitar Works of Fernando Sor”. Grand Solo is a one movement sonata and perhaps Sor’s finest extended work. Enjoy!http://www.jeffdwarshuismusic.com/562/

The Naxos Steal – The Naxos Record label puts out top line classical recordings by some of the world’s greatest players at an excellent price. This month’s suggestion is a fantastic recording covering many time periods in music. This month enjoy Jose Antonio Escobar’s incredible recording called “Guitar Recital” http://amzn.com/B00005N8DU

Featured CD Track – The famous Study #1 is track #1 from my recording “The Guitar Works of Fernando Sor”. Enjoy and share with a friend!http://www.jeffdwarshuismusic.com/529/

The Guitar Story – Part 2 – After feedback requesting information on my own musical story I have added “The Guitar Story”. Today is Part 2.

After seeing Classical Guitarist Guillermo Fierens I continued to play and perform Jazz and Blues music. It wasn’t until over 10 years later that I tried to reach Fierens for private study and learned he had moved to Italy. At the recommendation of the music department at Grand Valley I found Paul Vondiziano. I studied with Paul privately for 10 years and following five years of study began public concert performance. Stay tuned!

CD Review – Today’s review is from Dan Holbert of Grand Rapids Michigan.

“Perfection. As a fan of Julian Bream and Andre Segovia, I have a new hero. Jeff Dwarshuis performs with virtuosity, clarity and effortless beauty. And Fernando Sor’s works never disappoint. The CD is enjoyable from beginning to end.”
