TORROBA Guitar Concertos

"[Pepe Romero’s] formidable technique as well as his sense of rhythm and sensitive musicianship should win over even listeners with little or no knowledge of or interest in this kind of music. The Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra…turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The recording is excellent…Constantly inspired and inspirational music lovingly performed by devoted musician: this should be a source of delight for many listeners…" --MusicWeb International, August 2015

"Beautiful melody is to be found here, gentleness, and the softness of the Spanish night. Buy this!" --Fanfare, May 2015

An outstanding figure in the history of modern Spanish music, Federico Moreno Torroba is best known for his guitar works, his traditional style embracing the folklore and character of Spain. The Concierto en Flamenco requires an exceptional soloist, and Pepe Romero is justly famous for his masterful interpretations in both classical and flamenco genres.

The playful Diálogos entre guitarra y orquesta adds the luminous sonorities of harp and celesta to its colourful orchestration. Aires de La Mancha is evocative of this distinctive region in central Spain, while the Suite castellana includes Torroba’s first ever composition for guitar, Danza. This is the first of three volumes of Torroba’s complete works for guitar and orchestra.
