Heritage: Guitar in Venezuela
From the liner notes by Venezuelan author Alejandro Bruzual: 'Ricardo Iznaola's role in the history of the guitar in Venezuela has been deep and varied...Iznaola rapidly became the most distinguished figure of the country's third generation of academic guitarists...Through the repertoire, he expresses his resonant account of Venezuelan guitar music... evidence of the long path traversed in forty years to arrive at an artistic vision that sustains his very successful activities as international performer, researcher, pedagogue and composer.' This 2-CD set is a one-of-a-kind anthology of the best Venezuelan music for the guitar, with works by Borges, Sojo, Plaza, Lauro and many more, including works by a younger generation of composers like Diego Silva, Alex Rodriguez, Luis Zea, Leopoldo Igarza, Leon Zapata and others. Features the re-release of Iznaola's historic 1970 world-premiere recording of Antonio Lauro's legendary Sonata, as well as Lauro's Suite Venezolana and five of his most beloved Venezuelan Waltzes. A not-to-be-missed, one-of-a-kind collection!
