His years playing with his father and brothers in the famed Los Romeros Guitar Quartet and his thriving solo career have endeared this exceptional musician from Malaga, Spain, to devotees of the guitar throughout the world. This Spanish-flavored program spans three centuries of music and ranges in tone from the charming 14-part Suite Espagnole of Gaspar Sanz to the emotive Three Pieces by Agustín Pio Barrios (Choro da Saudade [Nostalgic Cry], Un Sueno en la Floresta [(Dreams in the Magic Garden]), and Aire de Zamba [Air of the Samba]) to Suite Andaluza, a vivid evocation of Romero’s ancestral homeland composed by his father, Celedonio.
"Paraguayan composer-performer Agustín Pio Barrios is sometimes described as the 'Chopin of the guitar'…. His guitar pieces stand out … for their elegant beauty, poetic ease, and for being perfectly conceived for their instrument in a way that only a virtuoso could achieve."—Rough Guide
