compact discs: La Floresta



    LA FLORESTA: A collection of fine things; pleasing to the taste; beauties.

    This classical release spotlights the music of Rodriguez, Brahms, Ponce, Sor, Harrison, Shand, Albeniz, MacDowell, Carcassi, Tarrega, and Sagreras. Mr. Andrews'  performance, with its characteristic clarity and sensitivity, underscores the lyricism and picturesque qualities that distinguish these haunting compositions.  The listener may well be reminded of Hector Berlioz' observation that "the guitar is a miniature orchestra."
