Info for Cuba Classics (Remastered)



2019, marks the 80th birthday of Leo Brouwer. For most of this past year—2018—he has been traveling the world, picking up honors left and right at guitar festivals, holding master classes, and generally soaking up some much-deserved appreciation from the guitar word for his long, illustrious career.

These pieces were a sort of résumé of my first hearings of Bartók and Stravinsky. Harmony? I knew nothing of harmony, but I had in my head the sounds I wanted, vertical and horizontal. I was clearly thinking of the spirit of my country, of the Afro-Cuban drums. Three dances from my country, my culture — some of their melodies sound Asiatic, some harmonies sound European, and the rhythms are African. That’s Cuba!

Leo Brouwer, classical guitar
