Finnish guitarist Timo Korhonen tackles substantial solo works by three of the late twentieth century's most important composers. Magnus Lindberg's sonata Mano a mano is the most lightweight contribution; he is skillful at exploiting the instrument's timbral variety, but the harmonic and rhythmic conventionality of the writing makes for a piece that is more bland than engaging. Each of the three movements of Takemitsu's In the Woods is each dedicated to a guitarist who championed his work: John Williams, Kiyoshi Shomura, and Julian Bream.
