This fourth volume of Leo Brouwer’s guitar music consists of works ranging from his earliest, the neo-classical Suite No. 1 ‘Antigua’, written at the age of sixteen, to his most recent compositions. Written in 2004, La ciudad de las columnas (The City of Columns), a nickname for Havana, is an evocative musical journey of various landmarks and images of the Cuban capital. The disc closes with Yemaya, inspired by a goddess from the Afro-Cuban Santería/ Yoruba religion, written by Leo Brouwer’s close friend and protégé, Joaquín Clerch. Volumes 1–3 of Leo Brouwer’s guitar music are available on Naxos 8.553630, 8.554195 and 8.554553.
