Written during the summer of 1999 basically between Barcelona, the Balearic Islands and the Costa Brava. The "Mare Nostrum" concerto features the intense Mediterranean light, and it transmits through the gentle, but at the same time intense strings of the guitar, the brilliant blue color of our sea and sky, the freshness of our land and the aromatic perfume of our plants. It had been for a long time that my guitarist friends were insisting me to write a concerto for guitar and orchestra. I had always been looking forward to that opportunity, but it was necessary to find the appropriate occasion to finally start the piece. My friend, and excellent guitarist, Alex Garrobe proposed to premiere the piece in the Guitar Festival of Lublin (Poland) under my conducting, which was a determinant factor to start writing this piece.
