Overview

Described as "The Royal Family of the Guitar" Los Romeros celebrate 50 years as a guitar quartet in 2008. At the 2007 GRAMMY® Awards, Los Romeros were honored by the Recording Academy® with the President's Merit Award in recognition of their achievements.

The story of Los Romeros started with Celedonio Romero (1917-1996). A self-taught guitar virtuoso, he taught each of his sons to play the guitar as soon as they were able to hold the instrument. Thus, Celin, Ángel and Pepe developed and brought the guitar to a global significance as individual soloists and as members of Los Romeros.

The ensemble has commissioned and premiered new works and numerous arrangements over the past half century. This new compilation features recordings made over more than thirty years and features the ensemble as well as individual members of this remarkable family in a wide variety of original works and arrangements.
