de FALLA: Homenaje pour le tombeau de Debussy • Siete Canciones Populares Españolas • Danza del Molinero • El amor brujo • Cubana • LLOBET: Transcriptions for 6 Guitars

Miguel Llobet (1878–1938) was a close contemporary and friend of Manuel de Falla (1876 –1946), but never became so famous. In fact, his fame stems largely from his arrangements of Falla’s music, such as his transcription for two guitars of Falla’s ballet El amor brujo. Falla’s own Homenaje pour le tombeau de Debussy is surely one of the greatest guitar works of the twentieth century, and it and other masterpieces are appropriately joined here by a work of Llobet’s own composition. Lira Orfeo was a Barcelona music society of which Llobet was both a founder and the director. This recording employs only vintage instruments with connections to Spanish and Catalan music.

This wonderful CD was recorded using 5 guitars made by Antonio de Torres made from 1859-1890, including Miguel Llobet's 1859 Torres and Francisco Tarrega's 1864 Torres, as well as a 1910 Enrique Garcia guitar, a 1929 Francisco Simplicio guitar, a 1906 Vicente Arias guitar and a 1958 Ignacio Fleta guitar-these all have Spruce soundboards. This CD is highly recommended.
