Notes and Editorial Reviews

The guitar legend Pepe Romero is back with his first solo album for Deutsche Grammophon. With “Spanish Nights” he presents a highly personal musical recreation of the Spain he knew in his youth: often dark, introspective and melancholy but also powerful and affirmative. The artist recalls: “Dreams of freedom and peace were expressed through the arts. Among my family’s close circle were great musicians, poets, painters and composers. When we moved to the US, we continued living in an idealized Spain.” The guitar legend Pepe Romero is back with his first solo album for Deutsche Grammophon.
