You’ll hear some of Celino’s solo recordings, past recordings of the quartet, as well as an excerpt from Pepe Romero’s past appearance on Thursdays @ Three.
As your virtual concert hall, All Classical Portland will continue to offer our Thursdays @ Three weekly concert to listeners around the world.
About Los Romeros:
Celedonio Romero, with his sons Celin, Pepe and Angel, founded the internationally renowned ensemble known to millions as “The Royal Family of the Guitar.” With the introduction of Celin’s son, Celino, into the quartet in 1990, and Angel ’s son Lito joining in 1996, the Romeros encompass three generations of concert artists. To have so many virtuosi of the same instrument in one family is unique in the music world, and in the realm of the classical guitar it is absolutely without precedent. Since the Romero family came to the United States in 1957, they have consistently dazzled audiences everywhere and have inspired enthusiastic praise from critics coast to coast.
