Manolo Franco - Aljibe

Manolo Franco - Aljibe composed by Manolo Franco. Edited by Claude Worms. For Guitar (Classical). Perfect binding, Solos. Flamenco. Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 104 pages. Published by Acordes Concert (MB.8493626020).

ISBN 9788493626020. Flamenco. 8.25 x 11.75 inches.

Aljibe' heralded all that Manolo Franco would bring to his musical artistic life: an extraordinary sound - round and truly flamenco - and an emphatic, clear, clean and polished technique. Whether solea, bulerias, alegrias or any other style, he was already a phenomenon of musicality and creativity. This album was all it took to rank him among the most important composers of flamenco guitar music.

These pieces - true documents for any flamenco guitar player - are unknown to later generations because that recording was not issued again and the originals, dormant, were waiting to be awakened to take their place again among the splendors of flamenco. This was an absence of a transcendental chapter of flamenco guitar since the compositions in this album, true masterpieces, until now were available only in an old recording made by the Spanish national television network. The appearance of these transcriptions is worth a lively round of applause because it is a rescue of something that belongs to all of us.

The virtuosity and sensitivity of the interpretation are a gift, note by note - yours to enjoy and admire.

En "Aljibe" estaba ya anunciado todo el equipaje que Manolo Franco llevaría en su vida artística musical: un sonido extraordinario, redondo y flamenquísimo y una técnica rotunda, clara, limpia y depurada. Por soleá, bulerías, alegrías... era ya entonces un fenómeno de musicalidad y creatividad. Basta este álbum para situarlo a la altura de los más importantes compositores de la guitarra flamenca.

Estos temas, verdaderos documentos para todo guitarrista flamenco, son desconocidos para las generaciones posteriores debido a que esta grabación no se reeditó y cuyos originales, adormecidos, esperaban ser despertados para asomar de nuevo a los esplendores del flamenco. Esta falta nos privó de conocer un capítulo más que trascendental de la guitarra flamenca, ya que las composiciones que aquí se encuentran, auténticas obras maestras, tan solo podían descubrirse, hasta ahora, en una antigua grabación de TVE. La aparición de estas transcripciones merece el más sonado aplauso pues constituyen un rescate de algo que nos pertenece a todos.

El virtuosismo y la sensibilidad de interpretación son un regalo, nota sobre nota: disfruten y admiren...
