Alí Arango, First Prize winner of the 2018 Tárrega International Guitar Competition, Benicàssim, has selected the repertoire for this recital in tribute to his years in Cuba where he learned many of these works. He has chosen Tárrega’s brilliant Gran jota, Barrios Mangoré’s masterpiece, La catedral and the powerful Sonata no.1 by his fellow Cuban, the contemporary master Leo Brouwer with whose music Arango is strongly associated. Also included is the guitarist’s own Tríptico para guitarra, a large-scale work that embraces sarabande-like motifs, polyphony and Afro-Cuban influences.
