About

Although biographical details of his life remain sketchy, Luys Milán’s Libro de música de vihuela de mano intitulado El Maestro is certainly the oldest surviving printed collection of vihuela music.

Tuned like the contemporary Renaissance lute, the Spanish vihuela is a guitar-shaped instrument and for it Milán wrote a series of compelling works, including fantasias and pavans that maturely fused improvisatory and polyphonic elements. This recording presents all the solo vihuela pieces from the first book of 'El Maestro' in the order in which they appear.

José Antonio Escobar is one of the most distinguished and versatile classical guitar soloists of his generation. He is especially known for the perfect balance he achieves between intense musical expression and a vast knowledge of various musical styles and periods. Under the influence of his first master, the lutenist Ernesto Quezada, he became deeply interested in early instruments of the guitar family, which led him to attend Early Music courses and masterclasses with renowned specialists such as Hopkinson Smith, Eduardo Egüez and Juan Carlos Rivera.

He has been awarded some fifteen prizes in leading international guitar competitions, and has a number of successful recordings to his credit.
