Classical Flamenco is the first album to be released at NativeDSD by HR Recordings. It features guitarist Esteban Gonda in a new DXD recording.
The album features a selection of Classical Flamenco music from traditional Spanish flamenco composers before Paco de Lucía. These are real classics of the most pure Spanish flamenco guitar.
Music by masters like Sabicas, Mario Escudero, Niño Ricardo, Esteban de Sanlúcar, Manolo Sanlúcar. Along with two original compositions by Esteban Gonda. A real discovery from the very young new classical flamenco guitar player.

The works here are delicately and sensitively played. This is not your thundering, rapid fire flamenco. This is far more refined fare. The album features a selection of Classical Flamenco music from traditional Spanish flamenco composers before Paco de Lucía, which means to me a more “pure” flamenco guitar music, less drama and flash. (And so the listening proved it to be.)
These are real classics of the most pure Spanish flamenco guitar. Music by masters like Sabicas, Mario Escudero, Niño Ricardo, Esteban de Sanlúcar, Manolo Sanlúcar, together with two original compositions by Esteban Gonda.
This young new classical flamenco guitar player is a wonderful find. I look forward to seeing future releases from him. The sound quality is very clean, very pure, with the microphones pulled back just enough to get a nice balance of the direct and room-ambient sound.

I am not a big flamenco guitar fan but this album has the elegance and musicality as well as the good technique , I mean clean technique, that many flamenco players, in my opinion , lack.
The music is refined, not brutal, and what is interesting to me. Is that all of this compositions are before Paco de Lucía days, this means to me a, somehow, more “pure” real flamenco guitar music.
Another happy surprise are the two original compositions by Mr. Gonda. The last two tracks of the album. I really like them, good quality music, original, tasty and with a good dose of honest human emotion.
The sound is excellent. Great mic-ing. I hope we hear more from this player and composer.
