Album Notes
There are arguments for considering the existence of a Venezuelan school of
guitar, with its own characteristics. This record, for the first time in
our history, including works by one composer performed by various
guitarists Venezuelans, is proof of that.
Rooted in the late nineteenth century, and with strong links with the field
of popular creation, emerged in Venezuela a first generation of national
academic guitarists around the master Raul Borges. Later, from his chair of
classical guitar, he had the gift to convene the best talent of a new
generation, which would form part of Antonio Lauro and Alirio Diaz. The
internalization of their works and their marked influence on subsequent
guitarists, are the characteristics of what we call our school.
Alirio Diaz both performed and recorded repertoire by Bach, Sor and
Castelnuovo Tedesco, as works of Lauro, and Mangore Ponce, among others. If
a criticism excessively centrist sees as the first music content producers
and the latter, only ethnic gestures. Diaz ventured by the concert with a
position mundodel desacralization and proud of what OU-continental, which
departed from the references of his other master, Andres Segovia.
Lauro for his part, added to the Latin American nationalist current time, in
the presence of his teacher of composition Vicente Emilio Sojo, the
real supplier
of-musical symbolic images of modern Venezuela. But Lauro assumed an
unapologetic modern cosmopolitan and populist nationalism without weights.
Taking the waltz as a privileged space for their searches, their provenance
council inheritance proto-popular piano concerto previous century Venezuelan
Impressionist influences and clear. But it was not a recipe, as some
believed blindly: composing waltzes over and over again or play popular
music of any stripe in any circumstance, but a complex of vindicating
actituc costitutiva, producing reference values​​.

Two generations later, the fourth, a group of composers guitar has
undertaken a work equivalent in your challenge, but with provision
econoclastica. His evocation of how big it is and just what folk Venezuelan
ethnic roots, to assume a conglomeration of influences of music from extensive
record, including the old cultures, but consider that racked nationalism
synthesis more mediator. Alex Rodriguez belongs to them, and his work building
a style in which elements appear professional experience in the world of jazz
(most evident in his arrangements for guitar), present in its aesthetic
deciciones. Although, clearly refers to the more personal style of Lauro,
characterized by a kind of pantonalismo or pluritonalidad without apparent
gravitational tonal plan, has a preference for searches atmospheres and
acoustic modal enharmonic color of the instrument. Since one of his first works
for guitar, Acrostic Infinite, Rodriguez uses consistent with positions for a
tour of chromatic substance entering tension with rhythmic patterns that
characterize the Venezuelan forms. As Lauro, Rodriguez also raises the waltz as
a field of experimentation, as a shift to new musical situations.
Two peculiar and opuetas works frame this repertoire. The bonus,
Galipán, which is part of popular tradition CHRISTMAS Venezuelan
attempt the difficult aspiration of simplicity, and the Quintet No. 1
showing architectural similarities with their suites, but announcing
work in concert for guitar and orchestra .

Rodriguez contemporaries, here are two outstanding performers, Douglas
Esteves and Ruben Riera, representatives of the variety of influences
and plurality that brought this generation, which, with the work of
Rodriguez, facing the search for a repertoire that characterized as
interpreters .
This record is a challenge in many ways. First, feel the base where
you will be growing the work of Alex Rodriguez, on facts and not
promises. After forcing us to hear the composer's voice emerging from
the different personalities of this select group of performers, and
finally to hear them all can understand then that songwriter and
guitarist confirm what was said at the beginning of this text, the
term of a guitar school Venezuela, which has a century of effort and
take great pride to all.
