This album unites a substantial selection of exceptional historical musicians, repertoire and instruments. The works on this recording were chosen as much for their intrinsic musical value as for their links to the Generación del 27, a literary movement which marked an inflection point in the history of modern art in Spain.
Importantly, this recording features some of the first solo pieces ever written by non-guitarist composers, but who were working in an atmosphere that could be best described as a guitar renaissance.
Many of these works were dedicated to Regino Sáinz de la Maza (1896-1981), an outstanding guitarist of the Madrid scene that the Generación del 27 circle were quick to extol as one of the most influential champions of his instrument.
