Agustin Barrios Mangore: Al estilo antiguo

This album is the culminating point of a research project that started as a dissertation at the Conservatorio “Canepa” of Sassari (Italy): The influence of the European forms in the work of Agustin Barrios. In that investigation, some works from the rich output of Agustin Barrios were chosen for analysis: despite their wide differences, they all shared an explicit reference to a form (or a composer) of the European tradition. Arbitrary as it may seem, this selection proves to be an interesting avenue to access the complex personality and artistic endeavor of Barrios, and this CD is the sounding companion to that research.
