Musica del Delphin

Notes & Reviews:

The ECM debut for internationally acclaimed and multiple prize-winning guitarist Pablo Márquez is also the first solo classical guitar record ever on the label. The recording features music of timeless beauty and vitality - 16th century Spanish composer Luys de Narváez' Seys Libros del Delphin. For his most important work, Narváez (ca. 1500-1550) assembled fantasias, settings of vocal pieces, secular and religious songs and various "diferencias," which are the first compositions in music history to be officially identified as variations. These pieces were originally written for the vihuela, a predecessor of the modern guitar, and Marquez has chosen 17 of the original 40 works for this recording. The homogeneous and approachable program is marked by a remarkably vocal elasticity and melodic warmth.
