“VERDE QUE TE QUIERO VERDE”: New production in Solera Flamenca

Rycardo Moreno & Pedro Javier González: “VERDE QUE TE QUIERO VERDE”.

Last June we were paid a visit by Maestros Rycardo Moreno and Pedro Javier González at Solera Flamenca studio. A visit which contributes to the expansion of our library, already with plenty of productions, which we have been creating little by little, almost without realizing it, meaning to show today’s most representative leading figures. This is turning out to be a great success among both guitarists and guitar lovers all around the world.

On this occasion, these two guitarists will delight us with a beautiful version of the popular song “VERDE QUE TE QUIERO VERDE”, a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca, made popular through its musical version by the deceased singer Manzanita. Now, these two geniuses of guitar are “borrowing” this great song in order to add originality and expressivity to it, but where improvisation and creativity can be found as well throughout the melody.

We remind the reader that this new young guitarist, Rycardo Moreno Montiel, a flamenco and jazz guitarist, was born in a gipsy family in 1981. He started in music at the age of 11, accompanying his grandmother, “Pepa la Cartuja”, by singing. He developed his career as a creator, musical producer, composer, arranger and guitarist in the tours of many artists, such as Dorantes, Lebrijano, Tomas de Perrate, Raimundo Amador, Yelsy Heredia, Esperanza Fernández, Javier Ruibal, or Lole Montoya, among many others.

Pedro Javier González is a guitarist and composer from Barcelona. He stands out as a guitarist due to his crystal-clear play, tempered and measured, as well as his musical versatility when it comes to adapting to different genres. Along his career, he has released eleven albums, and he has produced and collaborated with artists from different branches in classical, flamenco, jazz and pop-rock: Yoshimi Otani, Toti Soler, Feliu Gasull, Victoria de los Ángeles, El último de la fila, Joan Manuel Serrat, Lluis Llach, Maria del Mar Bonet, Manolo García, Paco Ortega, Mónica Molina, Angelo Branduardi, Manolo García or Roberto Alagna, among many others. A guitarist gifted with a flawless technique, as well as an exquisite musical taste we have the privilege to enjoy when recording all of our guitars.

It is a true privilege for us to be able to enjoy these two geniuses’ art and talent: their creativity, expression, good taste, work well done… it all comes from a full-time devotion to their job for years and years, as well as their natural born skills when it comes to playing the guitar. One can feel the way these two guitarists are synchronized, both as regards the melody and their great friendship and admiration for each other. This is important if music is intended to reach a certain level, a magical touch, far from the cruelty of competition we can see in so many duets nowadays. These two artists are likely to work together as an official duet. In any case, WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED!
