    Leo Brouwer: February 23rd - March 1st

    Guitarist Leo Brouwer has dedicated himself to the musical culture of his native Cuba all his life, pursuing the role of composer, educator and guitarist as well as activist in the Cuban Communist Party.  Celebrating his 75th birthday this week, on Blue we sample Brouwer’s extensive catalogue with his well known guitar compositions and arrangements along with his lesser known chamber works.
