Album Notes
RYCY Productions is pleased to announce the release of Yalil Guerra’s new classical guitar single, entitled “Agustin Barrios Mangoré: Vals Op.8 No.4". In this recording, Guerra performs this “à la Viennese” waltz by Barrios, a standard of the classical guitar repertoire, with brilliance, expertise and passion. The virtuosic passagework and rhythmic cadenzas in all sections are well presented, with Guerra staying true to this dance style throughout the performance.

Barrios was a Paraguayan-born composer and guitarist (1885-1944). His compositions can be divided into three basic categories: folkloric, imitative and religious. Barrios paid tribute to the music and people of his native land by composing pieces modeled after folk songs from South America and Central America. Imitating the compositional style and techniques of the Baroque and Romantic periods was another side to his craftsmanship. "La Catedral" may be viewed as Barrios' tribute to Bach. It is believed that "La Catedral" was inspired by a religious experience for Barrios; therefore, the piece may also be categorized under religion. Religious beliefs and experiences also played an important role in Barrios' compositional process. Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios (Alms for the Love of God) is another example of a religiously-inspired work. Breaking down the works of Barrios into these three categories helps the guitar enthusiast to better understand Barrios's musical intent.

Guerra states: "Barrios Mangoré has always been one of my favorites guitar composers. Bringing out his musical poetry and meeting his technical challenges is always demanding for every guitarist. This composer is without a doubt a must for every guitarist's repertoire."
