Homages to Segovia, Bream and fellow Paraguayan Agustín Barrios comprise this electrifying 92Y debut by guitarist Berta Rojas, a “guitarist without peer” (JazzTimes), who is the “definitive interpreter of Barrios” (Classical Guitar Magazine).
Rojas begins with an ode to two titanic guitarists. Andrés Segovia is honored with Torroba’s A Major Sonatina and selections from Villa-Lobos’ Études, which are followed by Lennox Berkeley’s impressionistic Sonatina, dedicated to Julian Bream. The second half is a survey of the works of Agustín Barrios; several beloved miniatures precede his wistful Un sueño en la floresta and the mighty La catedral.
