guitarrĂ­simo: 'The Mexican Guitar' with Morgan Szymanski

Thu 9 June 2016, 7.00pm
Instituto Cervantes Auditorium
102, Eaton Square
United Kingdom

‘Top class in every respect.’ Classical Guitar Magazine

London’s new guitar classical series, guitarrísimo, celebrates the Latin roots of the guitar – Spain's national instrument par excellence – and continues with a recital by Morgan Szymanski. Widely considered the greatest Mexican guitarist of his generation, Szymanski is also a passionate ambassador for the classical guitar repertoire of his homeland, and in this recital he explores various facets of the Mexican guitar canon, ranging from the contemporary sound worlds of Julio César Oliva and his exuberant evocations of Mexican landscapes, to more cosmopolitan works by Mexican-Italian composer, Simone Iannarelli, and, of course, an indispensable selection of lush, romantic songs by the seminal Mexican composer, Manuel M. Ponce, transcribed by Segovia. Join us in the beautifully-renovated Auditorium at the Instituto Cervantes to bask in the warm and colourful guitar music of Mexico.

PLUS Join us after the concert for a complimentary glass of Spanish wine!
