I just got in the remastered Barrios 3 CD set by Chanterelle. I told Rico Stover on the phone today "All of the in your face scratch sound has been removed, the recordings from 1913 are a real joy to listen to". 3/20/04
This wonderful triple CD set has 59 songs by the South American master, sometimes called the "Paganini of Paraguay". The works within are Barrios's originals (2 complete CDs-40 pieces) and transcriptions of European and South American composers, from Bach, Beethoven, Sor and Tarrega to Carlos Garcia Tolsa and Gustavo Sosa Escalada (1 CD-19 pieces).
For the rare "Habanera" from 1924 not included in this CD set see:
