* Required Fields

One of the foremost twentieth century composers for the classical guitar, Federico Moreno Torroba composed prolifically. His guitar music is particularly rich in its use of colour, melody, and lively rhythms to transport the listener into an essentially Spanish expression of a poetic and romantic sensibility. This first volume of a series devoted to Moreno Torroba features Castillos de España (Castles of Spain), which pays tribute to the many ancient fortifications throughout Spain and evokes the atmosphere of romance and mystery of bygone eras, and Puertas de Madrid (Gates of Madrid) centred this time on familiar landmarks of Moreno Torroba’s native city.

This, the first volume in a projected series of the complete guitar music of Moreno Torroba, features two charming, picturesque suites, Castillos de España (Castles of Spain) and Puertas de Madrid (Gates of Madrid). Also included is a Preludio, Vieja Leyenda (Old Legend) and Jaranera (In Merry Mood). The beautiful miniatures, although hardly taxing from a technical standpoint, nevertheless require the utmost concentration to bring off successfully (their air of nostalgia, perhaps symptomatic of Spanish nationalism, can sound rather cloying). This young Croatian guitarist Ana Vidovic does, playing cleanly and with a natural, easy virtuosity that allows her considerable musicality to capture the essence of each piece¦The production and sound engineering by guitarist Norbert Kraft and Bonnie Silver are, as always, first-rate, while noted Segovia authority Graham Wade's extrsordinarily detailed booklet notes are almost worth the price of this disc alone." - William Yeoman, Limelight
