Magellan’s Playlist, evokes the exotic and adventurous nature of its repertoire. It is a repertoire that could well have accompanied the explorer on his journeys had he lived in our digital age, his "playlist" as it were, a cornucopia of musical delights full of intercultural variety and musical pleasure. Beginning with the music of Fazil Say, the selections on this recording cover a wide span of cultural differences and eras ranging from Say’s easily accessible but revolutionary ideas through the British dryness of John Duarte and the sarcastic wit of Jean Francaix to the guitar virtuosity of Andrew York. Included as well is a bit of Chinese traditional music, a tribute to the country that hosts the Athens Guitar Duo on its tour of the People’s Republic

"There have been several albums of music for two guitars, the most famous being those by Julian Bream and John Williams, but this latest release on the Claudio label has some deeply attractive and unusual music played by these two very gifted young musicians. Magellan was of course an early global explorer, and it is an intriguing concept to have put together music that might well have featured on his personal ’playlist’ were he able to hear it as he traversed the planet. There are several excellent conceptual pieces here by the late lamented John Duarte, alongside music by such as Fazil Say, Lowell Liebermann and Jean Françaix, together with folk-based tracks. The playing is first-class, utterly convincing and the overall impression is one of deep musicality and welcoming, fascinating moods. A very strongly recommended issue, outstandingly well recorded." *****
