FEDERICO MORENO TORROBA [1891 – 1982]: AIRES DE LA MANCHA

Σαν σήμερα, 3 Μαρτίου 1891, γενήθηκε ο Federico Moreno Torroba, ένας από τους αξιοσημείωτους συνθέτες έργων για κλασική κιθάρα του εικοστού αιώνα. Πέρα από αυτά έγραψε αρκετές zarzuaelas [είδος ισπανικής ελαφριάς όπερας], μπαλέτα, συμφωνικά έργα και μουσική για πιάνο. Από τον David Russell ακούμε την σουίτα του για κλασική κιθάρα Aires De La Mancha που ο συνθέτης έγραψε προς τιμή του φίλου του, Andres Segovia.

    Excellent! Guitar is my fave instrument. My love of it begins with R&B music, starting with Sister Rosetta Tharpe, then all of the great rock players. The classic guitar came later to me, but guitar, of any kind is my first love of any instrument. Thank you very much!

      Guitar was my second instrument, the first was mandolin. I ‘m totally into string instruments, my very approach to the keyboard is the one of a guitar player. And I just love Sister Rosetta Tharpe – incredibly talented and miles ahead of her time!
