José María Gallardo Del Rey

Recovering the musicality

“… If I were a classical guitarist I would like to be like José María Gallardo Del Rey”

Paco De Lucia

As Ambassador of the Spanish Guitar, I have the honor to share and teach the great legacy of so many illustrious composers and teachers.

Cádiz

“Cádiz” – Suite Española Op. 47 (Isaac Albéniz) Arrangement For Guitar by José María Gallardo Del Rey.

Albéniz and the Spanish guitar. His works, original for piano, were dreamed from our instrument. I wanted to show with this version the light and the sensuality of this wonderful land.

Cadence nº2 of Concierto De Toledo

With the sixth in E flat, the sonority of the guitar becomes especially expressive and colorful.

Adiós Nonino

Adiós Nonino is a genuine “requiem” that Ástor Piazzolla composed on the death of his father. While on tour in Puerto Rico he received the tragic news and asked to remain alone with his bandoneon (it was the first time he did not write from the piano) and in a few hours he composed this theme that has been around the world. He himself made dozens of versions.

Milonga Del Ángel

Milonga Del Angel is, in my opinion, one of the most inspired and intense pieces of Astor Piazzolla‘s production. This arrangement is part of his version for quintet, that quintet with which Ástor toured the theaters around the world. In addition, with this score I had to watch and review videos and live recordings until I found a balance where the guitar showed the essence of the Buenos Aires soul.

Estudio nº1 a Serguéi Rachmaninov

These concert studies are the perfect excuse to do technique and enjoy music at the same time. They can be played as concert repertoire, hence the title, as a cycle or separately, even as a encores.

Estudio nº3 a Astor Piazzolla

These concert studies are the perfect excuse to do technique and enjoy music at the same time. They can be played as concert repertoire, hence the title, as a cycle or separately, even as a encores.
