Costa Levante News - - WHAT'S ON -

By Barry Wright ALI­CANTE pro­vin­cial au­di­to­rium (ADDA) is host­ing its fifth an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of the Span­ish gui­tar with a con­cert fea­tur­ing Mur­cia sym­phony or­ches­tra, un­der the ba­ton of Josep Vi­cent, ac­com­pa­nied by the ac­claimed gui­tarists Juan Manuel Cañizares and Manuel Bar­rueco.

The event takes place to­mor­row (Satur­day, No­vem­ber 10) at 20.00 and also fea­tures the par­tic­i­pa­tion of singer Gi­nesa Ortega, dancer David Romero and the ban­do­neon player Clau­dio Con­stan­tini.

The con­cert will get un­der­ way with in­ter­pre­ta­tions of pieces from the bal­let Es­tan­cia by Al­berto Gi­nastera, and will be fol­lowed by per­for­mances of Concierto de Aran­juez by Joaquín Ro­drigo and the dou­ble con­certo for ban­do­neon, gui­tar and string or­ches­tra en­ti­tled Trib­ute to Liege by As­tor Pan­taleón Pi­az­zolla.

The main event will be a per­for­mance of El Amor Brujo by Manuel de Falla, which will see the or­ches­tra and soloists ac­com­pa­nied by Ortega, Romero, and the artist Sa­gar Forniés.

Juan Manuel Cañizares is a fla­menco gui­tarist who has worked with the world’s prin­ci­pal or­ches­tras, as well as the likes of Paco de Lu­cia, John Paul Jones, Peter Gabriel, The Chief­tains and Marc Al­mond.

Manuel Bar­rueco is con­sid­ered to be one of the most im­por­tant gui­tarists of mod­ern times.

He has per­formed at such pres­ti­gious venues as the Royal Al­bert Hall, Vi­enna’s Wiener Musikverein and the Ber­liner Phil­har­monie, and col­lab­o­rated with the likes of Steven Stucky, Michael Daugherty, Roberto Sierra and Jonathan Lesh­noff.

In ad­di­tion to play­ing the ban­do­neon, Clau­dio Con­stan­tini is also a pi­anist and com­poser, who has worked with the likes of Ne­manja Radulovic and Les Trilles Du Di­able, An­dreas Ot­ten­samer, Erwin Schrott, Alexan­der Sitkovet­sky and Ksenija Si­dorova.

Josep Vi­cent ex­plained: “It is a project that has been gain­ing more and more in con­tent and has be­come the most em­blem­atic con­cert in all of the ter­ri­to­ries where the Span­ish gui­tar is played.

“With a se­ries of con­flu­ences, we have a line­up of soloists, a reper­toire and a com­bi­na­tion of aes­thet­ics in the pro­gramme on No­vem­ber 10 that will make the event a real cel­e­bra­tion. Ob­vi­ously there is lit­tle more to be said about the in­dis­putable qual­ity, com­mu­nica­tive ca­pac­ity and moder­nity of both Bar­rueco and Cañizares, be­cause there are many good soloists, but there are not so many who have all of these in­gre­di­ents.”

Tick­ets are €20 and avail­able from the venue web­site at www.ad­daal­i­cante.es

ADDA is sit­u­ated at Paseo de Cam­poamor, Ali­cante.
