Carlos Seixas & Antonio Soler Discography Press Reviews

Soler’s sonatas here have a strong Spanish dance flavour and Lester ends with a stunning account of the extraordinary extended Fandango.

Musical Pointers

Immaculate clarity and articulation neatly turned ornamentation glistening scalistic flourishes.

International Record Review

Energetic. Decisive. Deliberate. Authoritative. One could also almost add the word “exciting” to Lester’s approach. For his style is certainly full of vigor and lightly-worn virtuosity. The amazing 10-minute ‘Fandango’ with which the recital ends yields not a semiquaver to docility or drowsiness: it’s spectacularly alive.
