“Classical Guitar”, Great Britain
… Technical brilliance, however, is just one facet of Michael Goldort’s extraordinary talent, for he is first and foremost a master commu–nicator. Even in the relatively modest Purcell arrangements, he presents the music as if it were the finest set of miniatures the baroque has to offer. Elaborate yet seemingly spontaneous ornamentation is everywhere, and the slight damping of the strings in the Almand and the Corant adds yet another dimension to what was already a quite breathtaking interpretation. Debussy’s first Arabesque handled with style and sophistication, and Goldort’s account of Rodrigo’s curiously under-rated Sonata Giocosa shows once again that his Spanish fire is not the exclusive province of the Spanish.

Mit weichem Anschlag
… Gleich zu Beginn des Konzertes improvisierte er eindrucksvoll und ausführlich über ein Thema aus Christoph Willibald Glucks Oper „Orfeo und Eurydike“. Sehr melodiös und mit weichem Anschlag, dabei mit einigen wenigen energischen Akkorden Akzente setzend, gab er einen Vorgeschmack aus das noch Kommende: Romantische Stücke von Tschaikowskij oder Tarrega, wobei er die Melodienlinien erfreulicherweise frei von pathetischer Überhöhung hielt.
