An album with a long gestation period this one… But, all good things come to those who wait. Henrique or "Quique" as he is more usually known is a longtime friend of Anthony Phillips and has contributed to several of his albums. An accomplished guitarist himself, this album reflects not only the music and musicians who have influenced him but also his own undoubted talents.

Comprising interpretations of such classics as Cavatina and Erik Satie's Gymnopedie #1 already familiar to fans of Steve Hackett from the latter's Sketches of Satie album, along with several pieces from modern Spanish and Latin American composers and some of Quique's own compositions including the title track: Suenos (Dreams) and the wonderful Tema Para Cos. This is an accomplished album of wonderful guitar music which will delight music lovers of any persuasion.

Suenos Blueprint Records BP352CD.
