The CD is called "ROMERIAS" which in Spanish means CARNIVALS or BIG PARTIES where popular art works, food and drinks are displayed. "ROMERIAS" is a festive suite for solo guitar by the great Argentinian composer LALO SCHIFRIN. Trained as a classical musician (with a background in LAW), Schifrin's music is a fusion of the modern and the traditional in a style that reflects his long-standing passion for jazz and rhythm. While his guitar music may be new to you, you probably aren't hearing his music for the very first time. If you're a moviegoer and are familiar with such older box office hits as "Mission Impossible," "Cool Hand Luke," "Dirty Harry," "Bullitt," and "Amityville Horror" OR more recent ones such as "Tango," "Rush Hour," "The Bridge of San Luis Rey," and "Abominable" - then you've heard his music many times.  Schifrin has composed more than 100 scores for Hollywood. And if you still listen with nostalgia to the first "Three Tenors" concert in Caracalla, then the Grand Finale must be resounding in your ears - it was commissioned for the event and for the sequels that followed as well. These give you an idea of the man's versatility as a composer who writes across genres. A frequent collaborator of the greats in both classical music and jazz, Schifrin the composer is pianist and conductor as well, in which capacities he has frequently performed with the world's major orchestras.

Yes, there is another PUCCINI! Unlike the more famous 19th-century PUCCINI, he's an Argentinian who goes by the name of SERGIO.  Much acclaimed among today's classical guitarists, he often performs with chamber and music orchestras all over the world. In this CD album which WORLD PREMIERES on September 14, 2010, PUCCINI deftly captures the varied colors and moods of SCHIFRIN's celebration with mastery and exceptional sensitivity and musicality. The album also includes works for guitar by other composers that include ENRIQUE BEVACQU, ALFREDO RUGELES, LEO BROUWER, SALIM DADA and the Spanish icon Manuel de Falla as well as three compatriots- the famous ASTOR PIAZZOLLA, HERNAN NAVARRO and his own gifted daughter SABINA who composed the last piece in this album at age 9! So... for the rest of the summer, why not let "ROMERIAS" add sparkle to your musical enjoyment. It's easy, relaxing and you will likely agree, celebratory of guitar music.
