The Guitar Artistry of Liona Boyd (1976)

London Records CS 7068

I wasn't familiar with Liona Boyd when I saw this LP at the thrift shop, nor am I qualified to judge the merits of her playing, but this LP, her second, introduced me to some new pieces. The LP is in good shape, with the original shrink wrap. It is not on CD.

From the LP: "'...highly imaginative playing...flawless technique...' - Stereo Review"

From "All Music Guide to Classical Music":

Lauro: Andreina

Bach: Concerto No. 5 in F minor, Arioso

Mussorgsky: The Old Castle

Sagreras: Una Lagrima

Bach: Sonata No.2 in A minor, Andante


  1. Our hometown hero. She has played for two Pope's and three former Presidents as well as anyone and everyone in Canada. Her tone is somewhat unique and some of her originals are brilliant to listen to as well. Nice that you picked this one up. It's a great recording!

  2. This is GREAT! I love your blog my friend!

  3. Glad you're enjoying it. Thanks for leaving a comment.
