Special recording: Enno Voorhorst with the music "Around Barrios"

13-08-2013 Special recording: Enno Voorhorst with the music "Around Barrios"

This rare recording contains a number of compositions carefully selected around the life and work of the greatest composer of the guitar in the 20th century, Agustin Barrios. It includes some influential works of the Spanish composers that appeared in his programs and the later compositions of guitarists from the New World on whom he had a profound effect. Dutch guitarist Enno Voorhorst is an ideal interpreter!

In this album Barrios' traveller spirit is beautifully shown. From his early compositions until the very last, folkloric themes float through his music, especially those from South and Central America. Immitations of the baroque and romantic period are mixed with religious experiences. 

Seventy years after his death a new generation of artists champions his work. Barrios' compositions are now standard curriculum in nearly every guitar conservatory in the world. In this recording, Dutch guitarist Enno Voorhorst brings together works written by Barrios as well as composers whose work influenced the master like Heitor Villa-Lobos, Julio Salvador Sagreras, Antonio Lauro, Federico Moreno-Torroba, Francisco Tarréga and Emilio Pujol.

Enno Voorhost is a specialist in this repertoire. In 1987 he won the 1st prize at the International Guitar Competition in Hof (Germany), in 1992 the Dutch Guitar prize and the 1st prize at the Seto-Ohashi Competition in Japan. Enno's first CD with works by Agustin Barrios Mangor (Brilliant Classics 93086) received most favourable reviews and the recording was immediately ranked with those by John Williams and David Russell. Rico Stover, Barrios expert by excellence, wrote: the CD Agustin Barrios Mangor played by Enno Voorhorst is the best I have ever heard thus far”. The new recording promises to beat its predecessor and impress the reviewers worldwide!
