Fantastic introduction to classical guitar . . .

For anyone looking to get a solid intro to classical guitar, this CD is excellent. Norbert Kraft demonstrates wonderful dexterity with the guitar, while the Northern Chamber Orchestra provides a solid backdrop to Kraft. I admit I knew next to nothing about the use of the guitar as a classical instrument, which is why I specifically sought out this type of CD. This CD really shows a beginner (like myself) how beautiful and original the guitar can be. It’s a bonus that Amazon offers a wide selection of classical guitar CD’s for reasonable prices, like this one.
