I had a recording of this when I was a kid and it’s still one of my favorite arrangements of anything for guitar quartet.

I think I was at this concert!
Seeing this video makes it even harder to accept the story that the solo CDs released under the name “Celedonio Romero” from shortly after this time period are in fact truly by the distinguished patriarch. His hands seem very stiff and comparatively slow, versus Angel and Pepe, which is exactly how I recall seeing his performances with the Quartet many times in the L.A. area from about 1975 – 1990. Yet we’re told on these CDs that, in 1986, which is surely a few years later than this recording, he could blitz through the Bach Chaconne in 12:50 flat. I’d like to see even a home video of Maestro Celedonio in those years, playing with the fluency demonstrated on these CDs.
I sat many times across from el maestro Celedonio in his home in the late 80’s early 90’s. His technique is so incredibly amazing that he didn’t move his hand much (how it should be). The movement you see in this video from Angel and Pepe are more of “show” or “human expression”, not complication or technique. The technique they (Romeros) profess is about being relaxed and the absolute least movement for cleaner, faster, and a less mechanical performance.
