About This Performance

Presented in collaboration with the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society

Known to millions as “The Royal Family of the Guitar,” the Romeros are a veritable institution in the world of classical music. Encompassing three generations of gifted guitarists, they have, in the words of Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo, “developed the technique of the guitar by making what is difficult to be easy. They are without a doubt the grand masters of the guitar.”
