In review, The Romero Family, St Louis, MO, Feb 18, 2012

 What can I write that hasn’t been written before on the history, legacy, musicality or quality of a Romero family performance?  I struggle to conjure one unique perspective to share (more so that usual).  I will tell you about Set I where Pepe came out onstage to enthusiastic applause.  The title of the piece on the program is “Farrucas” by P. Romero.  Pepe announced a change in the program.  “Instead of performing the Farrucas’, he says, ‘there has been a request for the “Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra)” by Fransico Tárrega.  And, so I will play this piece now and the Farrucas in the second program.”  So, with the announcement, the audience gasped in anticipation and approval.  Obviously, to the masses, the Recuerdos is the ultimate guitar work (in my opinion).  It was a wonderful experience to see the smiles and fascination in the audience that night.  When Pepe finished there was a collective sigh from the audience (really, everyone sighed).  Amazing.  Unforgettable.
