The Romeros, the Royal Family of Guitar, have enjoyed an illustrious career with recitals and countless performances with such prestigious organizations as the Boston Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and many more. They have also performed at the White House, Vatican, Hollywood Bowl and for royal audiences, including Prince Charles. “The only classical guitar quartet of real stature in the world of music today,” states the New York Times. The performance opens with one of the most exciting and well-know overtures made famous by a certain masked man, and concludes with Respighi’s stirring portrait, the Pines of Rome, for large orchestra.
