Los Romeros is not only synonymous to classical guitar quartet; the family invented the ensemble that would enrapture the world since the ensemble’s establishment in 1958. It all started with the legendary Celedonio Romero, a soloist best remembered with, as The New York Times wrote, ‘a warmth of tone and defiantly Romantic rhythmic flexibility.’ Originally teamed up with three of Celedonio’s sons, the quartet now consists of guitarists from his second and third generations. Since Celedonio, the Romero family has been blessed with having many virtuosi in one house. The musicians’ natural bonding gives performances of unprecedented vigour and vitality.
Los Romero’s lasting legacy is the creation of an entirely new repertoire for guitar quartet, both as a chamber ensemble and as a concert soloist. Los Romeros arranges music from the classical repertoire and inspires composers to write new works for them, which in turn become masterpieces for guitar quartet.
Hong Kong will welcome the return of ‘the Royal Family of the Guitar’ in a programme consists of music by composers such as the Spanish master Albéniz, the eminent Brazilianian Lobos and music specially written and arranged by members of the Romero family.
