Celdonio Romero was the creator of the greatest guitar legacy of the 20th century; with his sons Celino, Pepe and Angel, he founded the internationally renowned ensemble know to millions as "The Royal Family of the Guitar."

With the introduction of Celin's son Celino into the quartet in 1990, and Angel's son Lito in 1996, the Romeros have encompassed three generations of concert artists. To have so many virtuosi of the same instrument in one family is unique in the music world, and in the realm of the classical guitar it is absolutely without precedent.

"The Romeros at The Gewandhaus: Guardians of the Holy Grail of the Classical Guitar." What the "Three Tenors" are to the world of opera, The Romeros are to classical guitar." Volkszeitung, Leipzig- November 1996

"One of the enduring mysteries of musical talent is how skills seem to flow genetically from musical parent to musical child. In the Romero family the flow has been swift and unimpeded." The New York Times
