The offered collection оf' Vyacheslav Komarov's arrangements for guitar was experienced through many years of concert performances. This is the most vital verification. Guitar is а special instrument, for sometimes the well-done music gets withered, sounding ugly and impoverished, though the guitarist is not guilty, unable to influence the process. Such cases wholly depend on the arrangers. However, sometimes the written transcriptions seems to augur ill of their success, while the guitar itself demonstrates their aesthetic validity.
As to Vyacheslav Komarov, his collection, everything is all right with it. His guitar plays wonderfully in all the styles — from tango of the thirties to variety rhythms of the sixties-seventies.
Together with his guitar you' ll get to the roots of now the Beatles, now the gypsy music and sometimes the whole ensemble of electric guitars' light will pour down on you, во as in the piece “Hotel California”.
Just take the guitar and play this collection from cover to cover, and thus feel on the top of the world.
