The Japanese guitarist Masayuki Takagi offers us, as the CD title suggests, a serenade of music for the Spanish guitar. We can appreciate not only the charm that lies in the strings and the cistern of wood, as a Spanish poet once named the Spanish guitar, but also the solid and refined musical technique of a great interpreter and connoisseur of the Spanish guitar and its music.
His interest in promoting the Spanish guitar and the Spanish ‘Guitarreros’ (guitar-craftsman) is also reflected in the music of the CD which has been recorded with three guitars made by Spanish ‘Guitarreros’. It is a gesture that I am personally grateful for.
