The Sleep Of Reason - A Classical Guitar Story
Label: Ars Produktion
The present release "The Sleep of Reason" uses Tedesco's setting of Goya's artwork "El Sueño de la Razón Produce Monstruos" ("The Sleep of Reason gives birth to monsters") as the centerpiece of the album, which summarizes 400 years of "guitar dreams" and explains the current reality of professional guitarists. As a musical label, each work takes the listener on a journey of discovery and understanding of the term "classical guitar".

He has won prizes at guitar competitions, performed as a soloist with symphony orchestras in Latin America and the USA and worked as an Artist Manager. Driven by his ambition to continue his education, he then developed a career as a strategy consultant for technology companies in Silicon Valley.
