I looked around for a second guitarist as Jorge Caballero played J.S. Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue and I wondered how he would later bring out the orchestra in Pictures at an Exhibition. We were not disappointed.
We found out he was only eleven when he first attempted Kazuhiko Yamashita’s arrangement of Pictures and nineteen when he finally understood it enough to play and recorded it publically. Caballero intimated that the multifarious avant-garde sounds were best brought out using classical guitar techniques. Pictures at an Exhibition was a long piece that sounded very short, and he treated us to big orchestral sounds on just a six-string guitar!
