Description: Consisting of 24 preludes and fugues in all the keys (even ones difficult on the guitar), Les guitares was written in 1962 for Ida Presti and Alexandre Lagoya. Counterpoint there is but not of Bachian magnitude. Rather, it shows C-T's ability to create from the widest variety of materials and to polish the results skillfully. 2 CDs. Duo Pace Poli Cappelli.
