THIS is different ... at times fanciful, at times folksy, at times formal. But, the interpretations just sound appropriate. If one listens to this, quietly and intently, it seem like it would sound in the mind of a person who lived their life in the culture of Barrios' native land.
If you haven't heard Berta Rojas play Barrios, you have yet to enjoy many facets of Barrios' music. Don't hesitate on this CD; it's terrific.
I too am a college trained classical guitar player for decades and play many of the pieces in the recording. That adds much of my deep appreciation to her talent and musicality. It doesn't get any better than this!
along with the Mexican Manuel Ponce and the Venezuelan Antonio Lauro(1917-1986) are among the best guitarrist composers of Latin-America. Barrios called himself "A true brother of the troubadors", and gave himself the name Mangore, after a Guarani indian chief. The present recording includes music by Barrios, some of it has come down to us by manuscripts,and others only by old recordings of the composer himself playing his own music.Berta Rojas does a wonderful job.

Wish all musicians were this good. Berta and the instrument are one. I don't know if Berra can sing but her fingers sure give a fine Impersonation breath control and coloring.Published on April 11, 2013 by Ralph Mark Gentry
