A native of Cuba, Leo Brouwer is universally acknowledged as one of the most challenging and innovative of contemporary composers. This programme brings the guitar into consort with the bandurria, a small lute dating from the 16th century and perennially popular in South America, the combination perfect for expressing the rustic rhythms of Cuban folk style in Música Incidental Campesina.

This recording covers a kaleidoscopic range of techniques and emotions, from political martyrdom in Chile to the immense vistas of Brazil. The Sonata para Bandurria was composed for one of the virtuoso performers on this recording, Pedro Chamorro.

Performer, composer, professor of plucked instruments at the Conservatory Arturo Soria, and Doctor in Arts (Music) cum laude at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música Arturo Soria, Madrid, Pedro Chamorro studied bandurria with Manuel Grandío in Spain and mandolin with Juan Carlos Muñoz in Luxembourg. An award winning performer, he is the dedicatee of Leo Brouwer’s 'Sonata para Bandurria' of 2011 and the 'Concierto de La Mancha' for bandurria and symphony orchestra of 2015.

Pedro Mateo González studied in Germany and Spain with teachers including José Luis Rodrigo, Roberto Aussel, Hugo Geller and Thomas Müller-Pering. He is currently a professor at the conservatories of Mallorca and Zaragoza. He has performed as a soloist with orchestras including the Orquesta Sinfónica de RTVE, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León and the Orquestra Simfònica de les Illes Balears, conducted by Alejandro Posadas, Adrián Leaper and Leo Brouwer.
