4 Valses Venezolanos – Antonio Lauro

Here are 4 waltzes by Venezuelan guitarist/composer Antonio Lauro. They were edited by Alirio Diaz who was an internationally renowned classical guitarist and former student of Andres Segovia.

Antonio Lauro is known for his skill in composing waltzes in a Venezuelan national style drawing form its folk traditions. His friend and champion Alirio Diaz brought his music to the classical guitar world and guitarists like John Williams and David Russel have also released albums of Lauro’s music.

I had the privilege of studying with Diaz in Italy in 2003 and worked on these pieces with him.
