Notes & Reviews:

Spanish guitarist Pedro Rojas Ogáyar performs contemporary Spanish music for guitar.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
He presents a program and certainly well played. There's a variety of works, some fairly traditional, some wildly experimental, and his purpose is to advocate for both ends of the aesthetic spectrum. His playing is dramatic, bold, and affecting, even in the strangest sets of sound. Your interest in this recital will depend on how much interest you have for those outskirts of experimentation.

Of these works, only Turina's 'Rafaga' and Falla's 'Homenaje' are familiar. Both are given fine performances, brooding and intense. Xavier Montsalvage's 3 Fados Ilusarios are in the same vein, as the Portuguese Fado tends to be. Roberto Gerhard's 'Fantasia', Agusti Charles's 'Vol de la Fado', Cesar Camarero's 'Solo', Mauricio Sotelo's 'Amor Imposible', and Benet Casablancas's '3 Piecas' are all with conventional sounds in the 12- tone framework. I've always enjoyed George Crumb's excursions into such territories beautiful combinations of sounds, and I found the works tedious, for all their energy. Ogayar is clearly committed to the whole range of the repertory.
