Rare, indeed, is the individual who can resist the allure and intoxication of this fabled instrument. In this, his follow-up to the best-selling A Touch of Class, the gifted Angel Romero has a assembled an imaginative program featuring some of the finest, most popular and accessible compositions written in the last three hundred years that is guaranteed to please even the most discerning listener.
Angel Romero is one of the greatest exponents of the fine art of guitar playing. His Spanish ancestry, his years as a member of the famed Los Romeros Guitar Quartet (comprising his father and two brothers), and his current, thriving solo career, have all endeared this exceptional musician to devotees of the instrument throughout the world.
A Touch of Romance features some of the most technically demanding and masterful music ever composed for guitar. The Spanish-flavored program spans three centuries of music and ranges in tone from the charming 17th century Suite Espagnole of Sanz to the vivid evocation of Romero's ancestral homeland, Suite Andaluza, composed by his chief musical inspiration, his famed father, Celedonio. These pieces, together with the rest of the recording, reveal Romero's gift of musical interpretation, and are perfect are for languid, romantic summer evenings.
