Puerto Rican composer and guitarist Ernesto Cordero dedicated his Concierto Festivo to celebrated soloist Pepe Romero, who describes the work as having ‘divine inspiration’. These works derive their warmth of expression and rhythmic influence from the composer’s native Caribbean island, and the two violin concertos ĺnsula and Concerto Tropical both contain descriptive elements from landscape and nature. ĺnsula is dedicated to renowned violinist and conductor Guillermo Figueroa, and I Solisti di Zagreb are recognised as one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras.

“No one purchasing this CD primarily to hear them play will be disappointed by Cordero's warm, melodic music, let alone any of the performances...On this recording Romero plays a standard guitar, but like no one else. In combination with Cordero's felicitous, imaginative writing, interpolation of Caribbean ingredients, and tastefully restrained string-orchestra scoring, the effect is more invigorating than a siesta.”
