It is with deep passion that I present this editorial proposal. Divided in two volumes, it honours Spanish guitarist and composer Federico Cano (1838-1904), until now unjustifiably forgotten. With his father, Antonio Cano Curriela (1811-1897), he represents a fundamental link between two classical guitarist schools: that of Fernando Sor (1778-1839) and Dionisio Aguado (1784-1849) and that of the late romantic of Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909). The key role of Antonio and Federico Cano’s musical and teaching contributions led me to promote this great artist.
