Ricardo Gallén releases Complete Brouwer Sonatas!

If his playing were not inspiring enough, Spanish guitar virtuoso Ricardo Gallén has just accomplished another impressive monumental feat that defines timelines by releasing the Complete Sonatas by legendary Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. Sonata Nº4 “Del Pensador” is dedicated to Ricardo and Sonata Nº6 “De los Enigmas” was originally written for archlute and transcribed by Ricardo. There is a beautifully created video documenting some of the recording’s production on his facebook page. [I can’t seem to share the video here].

I’m not sure if it is available in the US but here is a link:

I would highly recommend anything Ricardo has recorded but every guitarist should be familiar with his profound recording of J.S. Bach’s Complete Lute Works:

Bravo, Ricardo!!!
