The Romeros Guitar Quartet

Known as “The Royal Family of the Guitar,” the Romeros were founded by Celedonio Romero and his sons in 1958. The Quartet today consists of the second (Celin & Pepe) and third generations (Lito & Celino).  To have so many virtuosi of the same instrument in one family is unique. The New York Times has said: “Collectively, they are the only classical guitar quartet of real stature in the world today; in fact, they virtually invented the format.” The Romeros have helped create an entirely new repertoire for guitar quartet, both as a chamber ensemble and as a concerto soloist, and have inspired distinguished composers to either write new works or arrange existing ones.
