  • About This Album

    Guitarist Carlos Paredes comes from a long line of masters of the Portuguese guitar, a 12-string cousin of the modern instrument. The New York Times praised this album’s “emotional weight,” saying that in Paredes’ hands, the guitar “becomes a concert instrument; his piercing top notes, dazzling runs and buzzing chords set speed records even as he breaks your heart.”
