ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Berta Rojas is a musician who easily moves from classical to other musical genres. Whether working in collaboration, as with the legendary Carlos Barbosa-Lima, or as a soloist, Rojas has captivated music-lovers in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Most notably, she’s appeared at both the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and the Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York. Her performances at Washington D.C.’s John F. Kennedy Center and the South Bank Centre in London sold out in advance. In 1995 and 2005 she opened the International First Ladies Summit in Paraguay, the first one with special guest Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Praised by the Washington Post as a "guitarist extraordinaire," her musicianship and cordiality made her a favorite at the renowned John Marlow Guitar Series in Washington DC.

The Kennedy Center has recognized Rojas’ artistic excellence and selected her as a Fellow of the Americas for the Performing Arts. This award, as well as a grant by the Organization of American States, allowed her to earn a Masters Degree in Music from Baltimore’s prestigious Peabody Conservatory. While there, she was awarded the Zaidee Thomas Award and a Harold Randolph Prize.

Beyond her musical talents, Rojas is committed to supporting South American artists. She has produced a series of concerts in the U.S. that feature folk music played by Latin artists. In addition, she has served as Artistic Director to several South American competitions including the "Agustin Barrios International Festival," the "City of Asuncion Music Competition" and presently, the "Cardozo Ocampo Competition. For her contributions to cultural life, she was honored as the "Personality of the Year 2000" in the magazine Cartelera. In October 2004, Paraguay’s Minister of Tourism, Mrs. Evanhy de Gallegos, named Rojas Paraguay’s Ambassador of Tourism.

Berta Rojas is an adjunct professor of guitar at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

Peaceful, beautiful and full with sentimental melodies performed by a masterful
This CD is magical. Berta Rojas does a splendid job at transporting the listener to peaceful and beautiful musical scenarios, with the captivating melodies composed by Latinamerican greats like Agustin Barrios, Oscar Cardozo Ocampos, and Astor Piazzola. If you like classical guitar, this CD is a must. It is a tasteful and well composed musical work of art.

I know Berta Rojas,and she is one of the best
player of Agustin Barrios,and Astor Piazola,I have
the oportunity to be on few of her concerts,on
WashingtonDC,and on the Carniege Hall ,on New York,plus I have her recording,her CD's on mi car,
wich I listen all the time.The magic of her sensibility,take you to the real composer's world.
I thing she has to have more promotion,and make tours around all big citys on USA,and around the world,too,on order to be know for all clasic guitars music fans.I'm a guitar player,my self,
