G.E. 36 Rio de la Plata Guitar Virtuosos 1941-1955 CD $17.00
The Rio de la Plata (river of Silver) runs between Argentina & Uruguay up to it's source. This area of South America is overflowing with guitar virtuosos. Here we present two of them : Maria Luisa Anido & Julio Martinez Oyanguren.
The recordings of Maria Luisa Anido are the most effervescent I've ever heard her make, with an incredible dynamic range. The tone of Julio Martinez Oyanguren's playing is very thick in nature. He began recording in the early 1930's-and that fact is included in Domingo Prat's "Diccionario de Guitarristas"-published by Romero y Fernandez in 1934. The Guarani Dance by Agustin Barrios and arranged by Oyanguren is probably the first recording of a Barrios composition other than by the artist himself. Julio & Agustin were great friends, and performed duets in intimate settings.
