About this Recording

MORENO-TORROBA: Guitar Music, Vol. 1

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.
