LA CATEDRAL, Agustín Barrios Mangoré

Nitsuga (Agustin spelled backwards) Mangoré

(For many years it was thought that the piece was dedicated to Asuncion Cathedral in Paraguay or San Jose Cathedral in Uruguay...one thing is for sure, the three Cathedrals are very much similar) The Andante is a religious, mystique and deep movement which prepares the terrain for the impressionistic Allegro Solenne.

Barrios promoted his career depicting himself as a virtuoso Guarani Indian chief (the aborigine population of Paraguay) who played the guitar and composed in all styles. His artistic name Nitsuga Mangore was created reverting his first name from Agustin to Nitsuga, and adding the name of a mythical guarani indian chief Mangore.

Mangore's La Catedral is one of the most challenging guitar pieces you will ever play. If you want to include a major work in your repertoire, this is definitely the one piece to have. The challenge does not lie in any of the single sections of the work but in the sum of all the different sections. The allegro is a very demanding movement mostly for the left hand,although the right hand syncronization has to keep up with the left demanding passages.
