His music is deeply in the Venezuelan tradition but influenced by his European environment, particularly England and Germany where he has lived for several years.

  • August 26, 2012 Alfonso Montes - Works For Guitar, Vol. 1

    The works are printed clearly, at a nice size, on high quality stock. The fingerings are complete. I was attracted to "Preludio de Adios" after hearing it played by Tavi Jinariu. As an intermediate guitarist, I have learned a few of the standard works of Francisco Tarrega and I thought...

    this would be a nice transition into some modern work which is beautiful, but not to difficult to play.

    I really like this product. The Music is printed very clear and easy to read (spaced very good). It also has a biography about the composer and it is written in English and French.
