Miolin’s collection of the complete Villa-Lobos for solo guitar contains a quite different, more Segovia-like approach. Miolin plays a modern 10-string instrument, which produces a much fatter tone than a 6-string guitar.
Then too, Miolin is very generous with his warmth and rubato phrasing, and given to quick shifts of timbre. He’s amazingly accurate in his finger work. BIS’ recording reflects that too in its clean but lush fidelity. Sensational sonics in fact.
