The Art of the Cigar

CD info

Passionate cigar smoker and conductor Paul Van Nevel selected charming compositions that are brief sketches of the luxurious world of the cigar between the 16th and 20th century. They are superbly interpreted with a hint of irony and humour by the Huelgas Ensemble, and evoke the timeless pleasure and relaxing atmosphere that cigar lovers all over the world still treasure to this day...
