Johan Löfving (guitar)
Swedish-born guitar virtuoso Johan Löfving returns to Resonus Classics to record his debut solo album with a programme of works for both solo guitar and guitar with string quartet.
Joined by the Consone Quartet, and castanet player Nanako Aramaki, for Boccherinl’s fourth guitar quintet, Löfving presents a compelling selection of Romantic guitar repertoire framed by two fandango movements that show the influence of Spanish folk music, an idiom so intimately connected with this medium. With this recital of works from across Europe, the considerable reach and versatility of the guitar is on full display with music from the height of the instrument’s popularity.
'[...] charm, refinement, and virtuosity all wrapped into one album'
This is Classical Guitar
'The recording demonstrates the range of guitar music at a time when it was popular as a classical instrument.'
'The playing is superb throughout. Johan Löfving catches the Romantic idiom of the music perfectly through his sensitive use of rubato and the delicacy of his touch.'

'[...] a lovely exploration of the instrument's role in early 19th century music'
