Live In Portugal

NEW! Live in portugal

Cat. No. JRS1082CD

The classical guitar selections of this CD were played at an evening concert in the ancient 13th century Cathedral of Èvora, located in the Alentejo Province of Portugal on July 5th 2004. As Maestro Del Forno put it himself, “The natural acoustics within the cathedral amplified the notes of the guitar from the ancient vaultings. It created an ethereal and spiritual atmosphere I have rarely witnessed during any of my concerts anywhere around the world. The notes resounded through the cathedral as though they were descending from space itself.”

Cat. No. JRS1081CD

As a modern day virtuoso, composer and performer, Anton Del Forno is truly in a class by himself.  This album is an extremely rare and ambitious effort by a classical musician composing and recording his own works. Imagine hearing a recorded performance of Chopin playing his own Mazurkas or Paganini playing his own Caprices.  Not  since  Austin Barrios Mangoré has a performer  contributed  such  exquisite melodies to the genre he loves and dedicated his life to the cultivation and appreciation of artistic excellence. (Sheet music available in the Del Forno store.)

Del Forno first played his Christmas song adaptations in concert at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Christmas Day December 25th, 1973.  Every year people would ask if they were recorded.  Finally, in 1983, “Christmas Gifts” was released containing Del Forno’s adaptations of our many holiday favorites.  Twenty-three years later, it is still in print.
