Concierto de Castilla


Pepe Romero, Vicente Coves, Guitars
Extremadura Symphony Orchestra / Manuel Coves

Federico Moreno Torroba composed about one hundred works for the guitar, thereby reinforcing his status as one of Spain’s great twentieth-century
composers. Homenaje a la seguidilla pays lively tribute to that characteristically Spanish song and dance, while the Tonada concertante is in turns playful and
introspective. Concierto de Castilla features a free-spirited lyricism evocative of the folklore of Castile, a vast expanse in the middle of Spain with which the
composer strongly identified.

Guitar soloist Pepe Romero is one of the world’s finest guitarists and knew Torroba personally. He gave the world première of Torroba’s Diálogos entre guitarra y orquesta (heard on Volume 1).

The Tonada concertante in this disc was given its première by Pepe Romero in 1982 though the piece is dedicated to his father, Celedonio. Of volume 1 Fanfare wrote: “Beautiful melody is to be found here, gentleness, and the softness of the Spanish night. Buy this!” whilst another review in the same journal said: “Even if you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to guitar music, you will want this disc and, I suspect, the whole series.”

You would expect Pepe Romero to excel at the Concierto en Flamenco… The piece is gorgeous, the performance vibrant and passionate… The soloist in Diálogos is Romero’s gifted pupil, Vicente Coves, who plays as well as his mentor, and whose brother leads the orchestra vividly
and sympathetically
