Raphaella SMITS

"Smits plays with more heart than anybody should be allowed to have."
Tom Chandler, Classical Guitar Corner.
Raphaella Smits Guitar recital

Dear friends
This is a Happy Day ...
not just because I had my 60th birthday, but because I could realise another dream. I would love to share with you this new album with beautiful compositions from Ponce, Barrios and Mompou.

For supporting me with this project, special thanks to my husband Rene, to Javier Salvador from Rockeway Records (Castellon, Spain), and to Frank Koonce from Soundset Recordings (Scottsdale, Arizona, USA).

You can either download this music via Soundset Recordings or order a physical cd by e-mail to Academix. Soon the physical cd will also be available in USA (Soundset) and Japan (Gendai Guitar).

I hope you will enjoy this album.
With love, Raphaella
