"Initium" A Review by Dr. Candice Mowbray

I would like to share a brief and concise review of my album made by Dr. Candice Mowbray, assitant guitar professor at Shenandoah University. "Dear Samuel,

I listened to your CD fully and have to say "congratulations." I really appreciate your care and attention to creating a CD with an identity and point of view. The cover art, title and description are well-matched to the repertoire. I enjoyed the progression of the program: starting with a nice arrangement of a broadly familiar piece which is immediately appealing; including many favorites of Spanish and Latin American guitar repertoire; progressing to the De Falla piece with its dramatic rasgueados, and culminating with chamber pieces. It seems to me this album would be a wonderful starting point for new listeners who are beginning their classical guitar catalog. I say this because the repertoire, quality and packaging are very appealing, and the playing is musical and heart-felt."

Thanks for your review Dr. Candice Mowbray.
