We were fortunate to be able to record a concert last year of the entire Romero family along with virtuoso ukulele player Daniel Ho. The concert featured duets by Pepe Romero and Daniel Ho, as well as solos by each, in the first half, and then the Romero quartet in the second half. Angel Romero even made an appearance and sat in with the quartet. All instruments – guitars and ukuleles – were made by luthier Pepe Romero Jr., and it’s a wonderful showcase of the instruments played by some seriously legendary players.
Big thanks to the folks at AEA (http://www.ribbonmics.com) for lending us a pair of their N8 and N22 Active series ribbon mics and an RPQ preamp to record the show!
Our good friend Tara Rose Davison – soprano and self-accompanying guitarist who has done some fantastic videos for us of arias and art songs – needed a guitar that could really fill a room for her performance at the 2014 GFA convention, so she came in to play some guitars and chose a 2002 Jose Marin Plazuelo that we lent her for the concert. The concert was recorded and here we have the first few pieces, including Zenobia by Ernesto Cordero, Mozart’s Vedrai Carino, Schubert’s Nacht um Traume and Viardot’s Les Filles de Cadix.
Andrew York stopped by the showroom on Friday to choose a few guitars for his May 31 Live at GSI concert. He ended up choosing two older guitars and two newer ones: a 1930 Santos Hernandez, a 1964 David Rubio, a 2002 Edmund Blochinger and a 2010 Fritz Ober. Don’t miss you chance to hear Andrew York play material from his newest CD, Yamour, on these fantastic instruments in a uniquely intimate setting.
