FEDERICO MORENO TORROBA (1891-1982): Guitar Concertos, Vol. 1 - Concierto en Flamenco, Diálogos entre guitarra y orquesta, Aires de La Mancha and Suite castellana for Solo Guitar.
Catalogue Number: 01Q012
Description: This promises to be a good series for people tired of the usual Spanish guitar-and-orchestra repertoire. The 1962 concierto is one of the rare ones for flamenco guitarist, requiring a guitarist who both knows flamenco style (flamenco guitarists do not play with orchestras) and is a classical guitarist too, which is why this one is performed by Pepe Romero while the Diálogos of 1977, as steeped in typical Spanish folk music as any such concerto, allows the guitar to play when the orchestra isn't, giving him the best way to be heard. Pepe Romero (guitar - Flamenco & Aires), Vicente Coves (guitar), Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra; Manuel Coves.
