FEDERICO MORENO TORROBA (1891-1982): Guitar Concertos, Vol. 2 - Homenaje a la seguidilla, Tonada concertante, Concierto de Castilla.
Catalogue Number: 04S006
Description: This series, perfect for people tired of the usual Spanish guitar-and-orchestra repertoire, continues with the first of Torroba’s ten guitar concertos, the 1960 Concierto de Castilla (yes, he wrote his first of ten concertos at the age of 69!) which evokes the lyricism of Castilian folksong. The homenaje of 1962 and the Tonada (1975-80) continue in similar style, the former adding dashes of American jazz of the Gershwin type to its Spanish ambience. Pepe Romero (guitar), Vicente Coves (guitar - Concierto), Extremadura Symphony Orchestra; Manuel Coves.
