Pepe Romero ~ Internationales Pfingstseminar Koblenz Guitar Festival ~ May 2007
If you have met Pepe Romero before, you would know that he’s very warm and friendly.

I was lucky to watch his concert on Saturday night, May 26 at the Kammermusiksaal der Rhein-Mosel-Halle, a special guest of the Internationales Pfingstseminar Koblenz Guitar Festival.

On the concert night, the weather outside was very windy, and the accordion timber panels separating the concert hall from backstage were squeezed by the chairs leaning on them and squeaking at random. So with every squeak you hear murmurs from the audience and scattered giggles.
And for some reason, it was too hot inside. Perhaps because of the full house and the air-conditioning couldn’t keep up or it was turned off to keep the whirring down.
Anyhow, Pepe, being the professional that he was, let neither the rising heat nor the occasional noise distract his breathtaking playing.

After the concert, I anxiously rushed towards the exit to finally meet the meastro and I was very surprised to see him relaxing in the room backstage, probably cooling down from the hot atmosphere in the hall. I curiously poked my head in but I believe he asked his assistant to close the door just for a little and I felt for a split second I should not behave like the press so I walked away.

Then he came out to meet the audience. I was kindly introduced to Pepe by classical guitarist Alexander Ramirez.
And something quite strange happened. Pepe came and gave me a hug and I thought, “What’s going on here?”
But I hugged him back and then he asked what was my name again so he could sign the booklet. I then asked, “My teacher, Alfred Alexander is a very big fan of yours so could you please sign another booklet for him? He cheerfully did.

It felt strange and dreamy that I had just met Pepe Romero.
