VIDEO: Pepe Romero Performs @ Festival de la Guitarra de Granada 2017
Video footage of Pepe Romero’s August 5th performance at the Festival de la Guitarra de Granada 2017 can be seen below.
Pepe was born in Málaga, Spain, in 1944. He is the second son of one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived, Celedonio Romero – Pepe’s only guitar teacher. And he is brother to two more musical phenoms, Celin and Angel Romero.
By age seven, Pepe set foot on the concert stage for the first time, at the Teatro Lope de Vega in Sevilla. And now, more than sixty years later, he continues to mesmerize audiences throughout the world. During that time, he has given literally thousands of concerts worldwide, many with the remarkable Romero Quartet, and many as a solo instrumentalist. He has worked with almost every major conductor and has to his credit more than 60 recordings (among which are 20 concerto recordings with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, with both Neville Marriner and Iona Brown).
