Augustin Barrios Mangore: Un Sueno En La Floresta

Books | Guitar

Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
In the music of Agustin Barrios Mangore we find truly inspired creativity combined with a total technical dominio of the guitar's harmonic capabilities. His knowledge of harmonic science enabled hi to compose in several styles: baroque, classic, romantic and descriptive. He composed preludes, studies, suites, waltzes, mazurkas, taratellas and romanzas, as well as many onomatopoetic works describing physical objects or historical/cultural themes.

One can appreciate in Barrios Mangore a logical expansion of techniques defined by masters such as Sor and Tarrega, carried to an even higher level of expressiveness and technical expertise. The legacy of his genius is a priceless one for all lovers of the guitar. Richard Stover
