...Domeniconi (b. 1947) breaks away from the overly-Spanish idioms which have recently dominated this genre, creating a unique soundscape amalgamated from Anatolian influences. The result is a distinct and innovative style, taking almost any physical form one might expect. ... Harald Genzmer’s (1909 - 2007) Concerto in G for two guitars, wind quintet and strings also inhabits a tonal world of his own. ...Genzmer’s universe is based on a moderate modern major-minor tonality of his own creation. The considerably sparse instrumentation imparts a chamber-like quality to the music, finding rich melismata in an articulate dialogue between the guitarists and their accompanists.
