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.
