Recordings of Scott Kritzer
Romance for Guitar
Scott Kritzer’s album, Romance for Guitar, represents his deep affection for the music that first drew him to the classical guitar, the music that in fact draws many new classical guitar aficionados including works by Joaquin Turina, Federico Moreno Torroba, Manuel de Falla, Francesco Tarrega, Heitor Villa-Lobos as well as Scott Kritzer and Janet Chvatal’s popular arrangement of Giacomo Puccini Nessun Dorma for solo guitar. Romance for Guitar is dedicated to Michael Lorimer, with whom he initially studied many of these works with, and with whom he reunited for the making of this recording.
