Album Notes
Manuel Barrueco is internationally recognized as one of the most important guitarists of our time. His unique artistry has been continually described as that of a superb instrumentalist and a superior and elegant musician, possessing a seductive sound and uncommon lyrical gifts.

Mr. Barrueco’s recording catalogue includes over a dozen recordings for the EMI label. His recording of Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez with conductor and tenor Plácido Domingo and the Philharmonia Orchestra was cited as the best recording of that piece in Classic CD Magazine, while ¡Cuba! was called "an extraordinary musical achievement" by the San Francisco Chronicle. His Concierto Barroco, with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and conductor Víctor Pablo Pérez, received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Classical Recording.

Manuel Barrueco está reconocido internacionalmente como uno de los guitarristas más importantes de nuestros tiempos. Su maestría, de un estilo muy propio, es frecuentemente calificada como la de un gran instrumentista y músico superior y elegante, con un sonido seductor y un lirismo fuera de lo común.

Manuel Barrueco ha realizado más de una docena de grabaciones para EMI. Su grabación del Concierto de Aranjuez de Joaquín Rodrigo, con Plácido Domingo como director y la Orquesta Philharmonia, fue elegida por Classic CD Magazine como la mejor grabación realizada de dicha pieza, y su disco ¡Cuba!, ha sido calificado como "una proeza musical extraordinaria" por el San Francisco Chronicle. Su disco Concierto Barroco con Víctor Pablo Pérez y la Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, recibió una nominación a los Latin Grammys como la Mejor Grabación Clásica.

Solo Piazzolla (Tonar 70715), su primer disco bajo el sello Tonar, fue nominado para los 2008 Grammys como la Mejor Interpretación Instrumental de un Soloista.

Mr. Barrueco’s first release on the Tonar label, Solo Piazzolla (Tonar 70715), was nominated for a 2008 Grammy award in the category of Best Instrumental Solo Performance.

“...the best-sounding guitar records of any major artist.”
American Record Guide

“Manuel Barrueco is one of the best classical guitarists on the planet.”

Cuarteto Latinoamericano, formed in 1982, is known worldwide as the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet. This award-winning ensemble from Mexico consists of the three Bitrán brothers, violinists Saúl and Arón and cellist Alvaro, along with violist Javier Montiel.

The Cuarteto has recorded most of the Latin American repertoire for string quartet, and the sixth volume of their Villa-Lobos 17 quartets cycle, recorded for Dorian, was nominated for a Grammy award in 2002 in the field of Best Chamber Music Recording as well as for a Latin Grammy.

El Cuarteto Latinoamericano, fundado en México en 1982, representa hoy una voz única en el ámbito internacional, difundiendo la creación musical de América Latina en los principales centros musicales del mundo.

Formado por tres hermanos Bitran; Saúl y Arón, violinistas, y Alvaro, cellista, junto con Javier Montiel, violista, el Cuarteto Latinoamericano ha recibido importantes premios por sus grabaciones, tales como el Diapason d’Or y dos nominaciones a los Grammys. El Cuarteto Latinoamericano es desde 1987 cuarteto en residencia en la Universidad Carnegie Mellon en Pittsburgh, y realiza una intense actividad de conciertos en México, América Latina y Europa.

“...among the most fascinating and exciting string quartet discs I have heard in a long time,
with vital, fresh, imaginative music and sensitive, brilliant performances.”
The Washington Post

“Through such ensembles as the Cuarteto Latinoamericano,
Latin America's composers have long since arrived on the world's stage.”
