“Concierto de la Amistad” by Lalo Schifrin (World Premiere) – August 2, 2016 at The Hollywood Bowl with Gustavo Dudamel, conducting; Angel Romero, Guitar; and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra “The first time I heard Angel Romero’s guitar playing, I was mesmerized not only by his impeccable technique but also by the passion he has invested in every single note. That is why I wrote for him my first guitar concerto a few years back, which he recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
But that was not enough for me. Now I have decided to offer him a second concerto in order to continue our musical journey together. This will be not only our tribute to our long friendship but also an invitation to music lovers, all over, to join us. Lalo Schifrin”
