Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Romero is one of the most masterly living technicians, with a wide palette of tone-colour at his fingertips... [H]is interpretations...come from the heart... Differences between Romero's approach and those of Segovia, Bream or Williams are largely expressions of their individual temperaments, different solutions to the equation—the balance between the art-musical and Spanish-traditional elements in this music... [Q]uite superbly recorded." -- John Duarte, Gramophone [9/1987] "...Romero is one of the most masterly living technicians, with a wide palette of tone-colour at his fingertips...
