Brilliant Classics is proud to bring to the market this unique 6-CD Set dedicated to the original music for solo guitar of the Paraguayan composer Agustin Barrios Mangoré (1885 – 1944).

Barrios is still revered in Paraguay, where he is seen as one of the greatest musicians of all time by many. John Williams has said of Barrios: “As a guitarist/composer, Barrios is the best of the lot, regardless of era. His music is better formed, it’s more poetic, it’s more everything! And it’s more of all those things in a timeless way”

Over Six and half hours of music recorded with the latest digital technology, over 110 tracks that shape the most comprehensive recording dedicated to the original music of guitarist-composer best known in South America.

The set includes several “World Premiere Recordings” and recent discoveries, including “Leyenda Guaraní”, “Rancho Quemado”, “Isabel”, “Bicho Feo” and many others.
