Magdalena Duhagon
By Guilherme de Alencar Pinto

This young guitarist studied under Abel Carlevaro and Eduardo Fernández among others and she is establishing a concert career in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. This is her first album with an eclectic repertoire. Most of the music on the CD has a strong popular flavor (composed by Piazolla, Radames Gnatalli, and Quique Sinesi) but there is also the most classical of the composers for the guitar (the Catalan Fernando Sor) as well as some compositions by composers well established on the classical music world (the Uruguayan Isaias Savio and the American Robert Beaser) and transcriptions of famous melodies by Villa-Lobos, Bizet and Fabini.
