First I need to make clear that I'm reviewing the regular CD version of this disk. I haven't heard the SACD version, but feel that most of my remarks, except specifics about sound quality, will apply to it.

If you want to taste the guitar-playing delights offered up by the Romero family or if you want a fine historical record of this remarkable musical dynasty, then this is the CD for you! Jointly and severally, the Romeros do their stuff here: Celedonio (the pater familias), and his sons Ángel, Celín, and Pepe. To back them up the San Antonio Symphony, in one of its very earliest major-label recordings, does its damnedest under the baton of Victor Alessandro--with truly fine results.

To capture the event with the fullest possible fidelity available in 1967 the Mercury Records engineers employ the special setup of their "Living Presence" series: a three-channel, half-inch tape recorder fed by three individual Telefunken 201 microphones, augmented here by a fourth to reinforce the center channel. All the fuss clearly pays off in the marvelous sound quality of this recording.

To get the ball rolling Ángel delivers a truly excellent performance of Joaquín Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez." (Though Ángel subsequently focussed on conducting, it could not have been for lack of success in playing: his mastery of the guitar is manifest.)

Next the whole family join in on Rodrigo's "Concierto Andaluz for Four Guitars and Orchestra," a joyous, tuneful exhibition of how great four guitars and orchestra can sound together. This is not heavy "symphonic" fare, but music to celebrate the joys of life and lovely sounds.

I own two other CDs of this music by Rodrigo but they cannot compare to this first class SACD. Despite being recorded long before the other two CDs, the sound and performances on this disc outshine them. Highly recommended.

The way the Los Romeros play these guitar pieces is simply divine, or I should say hypnotic...
