Maestro Soler recorded the CD, "Guitar, Collection of Francesc de Paula Soler," for Mel Bay Publications (US), and "Casa Beethoven Publicacions," "Catalana de Ediciones Musicales," "Clivis Publicacions," "Terona de Ediciones Musicales," and "Editorial Boileau" (Spain). He has received numerous awards and honors in recognition for his artistic merits. According to The Washington Post: "Soler showed himself to be unusually sensitive to color and the rhapsodic rise and fall of the phrases," adding, "He played dazzling solos with his left hand on the fingerboard, unleashed a battery of right-hand percussive effects on the body of the guitar, and engaged in some creative pitch-bending on blues-tinged melodies."

Known as the "Poet of the Guitar," Maestro Soler’s wide international activity as a performer has brought critics to hail him as one of the most notable artists of the guitar world.
