"Sounds of Europe" has a little something for every music lover. The album is divided up into six different sections, each of which represents the countries of Italy, France, Germany, Britain, Ireland, and Spain. The sounds of Italy are pronounced in "O Sole Mio" a favorite from the region. A transcription of Puccini's "Musetta's Waltz" from the Opera La Boheme will please fans of the original work as well as guitarists. Two Eric Satie pieces represent early minimalism and the country of France with it's majestic beauty. Germany has been the birthplace of many of the most popular composers and included on this album are works by Bach, Schubert, and Mozart. The transcription from voice and piano to guitar on Schubert's "Serenade" is a standout piece which any music lover will enjoy. Works from Britain include Stanley Myer's "Cavatina," a piece featured predominantly in the 1970's movie the Deer Hunter. Rounding out this diverse album are works from Spain including two popular Francisco Tarrega pieces and the touching "Dedicatoria" by Enrique Granados.
