Ricardo Gallén, one of the one of the most distinguished and accomplished classical guitarists, offers an intimate immersion into Latin American guitar music, alternating brilliant and nostalgic pieces. “En Silencio” presents a selection of some of the least and the best known works of twentieth-century Latin American guitar repertoire, among them Astor Piazzolla’s Invierno Porteño, Agustín Barrios’s La Catedral and Jorge Morel’s Sonatina. On this recording, Ricardo Gallén performs on a copy of a 1864 Antonio de Torres guitar by Paco Santiago Marín.
