Classica Venezolana
Release date: 2010
Formation: Flute: Anette Maiburg, Vocals: Fabiola José, Guitar: Nirse González, Cuatro: Jesús González Brito

 

With his new CD "Classica Venezolana", Nirse González goes on a musical journey through his home country Venezuela.
Folklore is of particular value in the South American country.  Playing music spontaneously with family and friends is cultivated and is part of expressing life. The music is just as diverse as Venezuela's landscapes.
Melancholy, virtuosity, lust for life and fast rhythms alternate with each other.
The transitions to classical music are flowing - you can feel influences by European classical music: the waltz is one of the most important musical genres. Other pieces are arranged in counterpoints similar to baroque style music.
In addition, the excellent musical education in Venezuela has become a role model for very talented composers which can be heard here.
With German flutist Anette Maiburg and her award-winning "Classica..." series, Nirse González has found the ideal partner for his musical project.
The series was created at the classic label Dabringhaus and Grimm in order to present world music on a high musical level designed for the classic concert hall.
With singer Fabiola José and cuatro player Jesús González Brito, they were able to win two first-class musicians from Venezuela.

Nirse González
Guitar Recital
Release date: 2007

 

On his first album, Nirse González introduces himself with standard works for classic       
guitar. The release is part of winning the1st prize at the internationally-renowned competition
„XL Certamen Internacional de Guitarra Francisco Tárrega 2006“.
You can listen to his own arrangment of the second violin sonata BWV 1003 by J.S.  Bach for guitar, the sonata of Spanish composer A. José, Théme Varié et Finale by M. Ponce, the world premiere of two works of the Cuban guitarist and composer J. Clerch and - as a hommage to the eponym of the competition - two pieces by F. Tarrega.
Critics point out the exact play, exactness with regards to the rhythm, virtuosity and in particular its remarkable musicality.
The NAXOS critic David's Review Corner of August 2007 reads:
I hope we will hear a lot more of this young Venezuelan, his musicianship a cut above others I have heard in recent years.
