Rafael Aguirre is acknowledged as one of today’s most celebrated virtuoso guitarists, having won first prize at 13 of the world’s most prestigious international competitions: a record-breaking achievement for a Spanish musician. Following on from his previous, acclaimed recording (8.572064), this full-blooded recital is of music by Spanish composers or those influenced by Iberia, from the pure flamenco of Paco de Lucía’s Guajiras to Debussy’s impressionistic Soirée dans Grenade, and from Albéniz’s Triana, named after the gypsy quarter in Seville, to the virtuoso fireworks of Tárrega’s Gran Jota.


Review By Rafael Ramis Barceló,Ritmo,July 2012

Rafael Aguirre es una de las grandes promesas de la guitarra clásica española, después de ganar el premio Tárrega de 2007 y el Alhambra de 2010. En Naxos ya había ofrecido un buen recital con obras de Sor, Tárrega y Villa-Lobos, y notables transcripciones. En el presente disco aborda un repertorio similar, en el que nuevamente abundan las transcripciones, que dejan muchas veces de lado un repertorio guitarrístico de elevada calidad, pero menos conocido. Hay que destacar en el disco la primera grabación de una obra titulada Spanish Impressions de Sergio Assad, dedicada al joven guitarrista.
