With its grotesque cast of supernatural beings and subhuman characters, the satirical etchings of Francisco Goya’s Los Caprichos (1799) portray the sufferings of 18th century Spain in some of Western art’s most influential images.
Originally conceived for Andrés Segovia, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s 24 Caprichos de Goya has seldom been recorded complete.
It is here by Croatian guitarist Zoran Dukic, whose spectacular virtuosity, profound musicianship and artistic maturity have won him more first prizes in international competitions than anyone else in the world. He is the first guitarist ever to win both Segovia competitions in Granada and Palma.
“The 26-year old string genius from Zagreb showed both technical brilliance and tenderness, with the artistic potential and expressive power of life itself. …This is a musician not a guitarist” Kölnische Rundschau
