About the album

This recording contains a number of compositions carefully selected around the life and work of the greatest composer of the guitar in the 20th century, and includes not only influential works of Spanish composers that appeared in his programs, but also later compositions of guitarists from the New World on whom he had a profound effect. Agustín Barrios Mangoré died almost seventy years ago.

A new generation of artists now champion his work, and 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.
Een selectie van prachtige gitaarwerken die zelden worden opgenomen
Dit debuutalbum van Enno Voorhorst bij Challenge Classics bevat werken rondom het leven en de composities van Agustin Barrios. Er zijn niet alleen werken van Barrios zelf te horen, maar ook die van componisten die hem hebben beïnvloed, zoals Heitor Villa-Lobos, Julio Salvador Sagreras, Antonio Lauro, Federico Moreno-Torroba, Francisco Tarréga en Emilio Pujol.

Barrios is de grootste gitaarcomponist van de 20e eeuw. Sinds zijn overlijden hebben onderzoekers in Amerika en Europa intrigerende details over de carrière van deze Paraguayaanse componist en gitarist ontdekt. Een nieuwe generatie van artiesten pleit nu voor zijn werk. Daarnaast zijn de composities van Barrios opgenomen in het curriculum van bijna elk gitaarconservatorium.

De Nederlandse gitarist Enno Voorhorst is in specialist in dit repertoire. Voorhorst vormt een duo met de Nederlandse hoboïste Pauline Oostenrijk, die een grote voorliefde heeft voor kamermuziek.

Enno Voorhorst was born into a family of musicians in The Hague, Holland in 1962. He studied the guitar with Hein Sanderink, Hubert Käppel and David Russell. In 1987 he won the first prize at the 7th International Guitar Competition in Hof (Germany). In 1992 he won the Dutch Guitar Prize and, in the same year, first prize at the Seto-Ohashi Competition in Japan. His solo concerts have taken him all over the world from Japan to El Salvador.

His first CD featured repertoire from Agustín Barrios Mangoré (Sony 1994, Brilliant Records 2005) and has earned international acclaim. Roberto Brocamonte, a student of Barrios, wrote about this recording “Enno’s tremolo is perfect. It seems that ‘The Indian of Paraguay’ composed it specially for these wonderful hands”. The Barrios specialist Rico Stover wrote about this recording: ‘This CD played by Enno Voorhorst is the best I have heard thus far’. In 2012 Jorge Morel dedicated ‘Recuerdos del Camino’ to Enno Voorhorst with a similar comment: ‘en tus manos, Dios pone el espíritu de Mangoré’.

After his next recording with music by J.S. Bach (Naxos), Enno recorded a second CD with repertoire by A. Barrios in 2001 (Naxos) and another one dedicated to the Mexican composer M.M.Ponce (Ottavo) which further demonstrates his love for South American music. This music is also largely represented in the programs of the Duo Macondo which he has together with the Russian-Mexican viola player Mikhail Zemtsov.

Recently Enno has formed a duo with the Dutch oboeist Pauline Oostenrijk which shows his great love for chamber music. Enno Voorhorst is currently Professor at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands.
