Notes and Editorial Reviews

This programme by Andrea Gonzalez Caballero, winner of the 2016 Alhambra International Guitar Competition in Spain, has been carefully chosen for comparison and contrast. Containing a wide range of compositional styles from the romantic 19th century to the present, it includes characteristic Spanish music by Tarrega and Albeniz, freshly minted works by some of today’s most important composers from Cuba, Spain and Brazil, as well as one of the most significant mid-20th century works for guitar, the Nocturnal by Benjamin Britten.
