About this album

In this classical guitar compilation I attempt to travel you through the centuries, from the Renaissance (1500) until the beginning of the previous century. A journey full of images, landscapes, tradition and history, with major works of composers who have contributed greatly to the literature and the evolution of this wonderful instrument. From the “Pavan” of Luis de Milán, a piece contained in the first book in the music history, issued about “vihuela”, up to the famous “Suite Española” of Isaac Albéniz.

Intermediate stations are the “Fantasia, οp.7” of Fernando Sor, a piece he composed in order to prove his composing capabilities against Mauro Giuliani, the operatic theme of Zarzuela “Marina” of Pascual Arrieta and the beautiful “A Ma Mie” of Alberto Obregon, a piece with which he persuaded the great Francisco Tárrega to teach him. Therefore let’s wander in the second half of the previous millennium …
