Ricardo Rocha Portugal
Don’t call him a virtuoso, as the work Ricardo Rocha does with the Portuguese Guitar goes way beyond technique. He’s more like a surgeon, extracting the ‘Fado’ tumour from an instrument that rarely had a life of its own, apart from that Lisbon tradition. To prove it, the second CD on his “Luminismo” double-album adds unexpected names (Scriabin or Boulez) to the mix, on a series of piano pieces.
