Notes & Reviews:

The guitar legend Pepe Romero is back with his first solo album for Deutsche Grammophon.

His Philipies recording of RODRIGO: Concierto de Aranjuez; Fatasia para un Gentilhombre has sold over 300.000 units worldwide.

With "Spanish Nights" he presents a highly personal musical recreation of the Spain he knew in his youth: often dar, introspective and melancholy but also powerful and affirmative. The artist recalls: "Dreamers of freedom and peace were expressed through the arts. Among my family's close circle were great musician, poets, painters and composers. When we moved to the US, we continued living in an idealized Spain."

Celebrated worldwide or his interpretations and technique, guitarist Pepe Romero is in constant demand for solo recitals and appearances with orchestra.

Pepe Romero astonishes with his ability to elicit from one stringed instrument an emotional and coloristic gamut that rivals a chamber orchestra.

He is that great rarity in the guitar world who commands both classical and flamenco styles.

Pepe Romero's virtuosity and investment of thought and feeling into every note he plays have inspired such distinguished composers as Rodrigo and Torroba - both represented here - to create works for him.

The album features a world premiere recording, Suite Madrileña No. 1, written by Celedonion Romero, Pepe's father and founder of "Los Romeros." 2013 marks Celedonio's centenary, who was born on 2 March.
