Andrey Lebdev (guitar) presents ‘Viva España!’ at St Bartholomew the Less.
About the programme: Nothing evokes Spain more clearly than the guitar. Painting a musical picture of this historic country, guitarist Andrey Lebedev presents some of the best-known Spanish guitar music. Starting in Andalusia, in the South, music by Isaac Albéniz and Francisco Tárrega conjures a cool evening at the ancient Alhambra palace, and Albéniz’s Asturias – the quintessential Spanish guitar piece – draws on the region’s rich flamenco tradition. Heading North, Lebedev shares some of Miguel Llobet’s tender Catalonian folksongs, as well as and No te escaparás [You will not escape] by Australian composer Brett Dean, music inspired by the twisted etchings of Fransisco Goya, one of Aragon’s most famous sons.
