Portada (faja) -  Ochra.jpg




This album collects some of my works for guitar, focusing on the pieces written for solo guitar. I believe that my passion for this instrument was born from my fascination as a child for the bandurria, the lute and the guitar itself and was almost certainly strengthen by the first intensive composition courses that I attended with Leo Brouwer, whom I truly admire and esteem, when I was twenty years old. Be that as it may, the guitar represents a constant in my projects - I think I use it in more than forty works, from solos to chamber music. It is one of the major instruments that I play and has represented a leading presence in several of my projects over the years. The recent premiere of Memoria del ocre, a work for guitar and orchestra, represents a landmark in this long adventure. I cannot but thank Giuseppe Mennuti for his interest and wonderful work as guitarist on this album as well as all the guitarists who have accompanied my career as a composer, enriching it with their concerts, commissions and many unforgettable performances which upheld and increased my love for this instrument.
