Default Tarrega!

In my humble opinion, Manuel Barrueco is the finest classical guitarist around today. He plays with razor sharp precision and with beautiful musicality. Manuel is famous for perfectly executed performances, blended with emotion, control, and incredible speed. His 1994 cd "Sometime Ago" is one of my few desert island cds.

Manuel has a new recording scheduled for release on December 1st, Tarrega!, an impressive collection of Fransisco Tarrega compositions. Yes, Tarrega has been recorded to death by classical guitarists for years, but this Tarrega recording promises to be special. Ordered mine today! There's a list of short clips from each track....great stuff.
