Top 3 streaming chart: August 2017

The most streamed album of our catalogue in August 2017 is Complete Works for Guitar (2CD) by Francisco Tárrega, performed by the young and yet already successful Giulio Tampalini. The composer Angelo Gilardino (see below) writes about Francisco Tárrega: “His works for guitar reflect some of the key traits of ‘minor’ Romanticism: the predilection for introspection, the quest for the exotic and an interest in the ‘music of the people’. Moreover, he developed the genre called ‘studio da concerto’ for the guitar, recreating works of other
composers, written for other instruments.”
