Guitar Folias
  • Edinburgh Fringe

La Fola is possibly the oldest remembered European musical themes. The virtuosic Variations by underrated romantic guitarist Miguel Llobet is a breathless rapture of Fernando Sor rendition. Celebrating Castelnuovo-Tedesco's 50th anniversary Luca interprets his happy and brilliant Tarantella. The Suite Popular Argentina, dedicated to Narciso Yepes, is a work rarely played despite it is a superb concentrate of South American spirit, including Zamba, Milonga, Chacarera, Vidala, Tango and Malambo. The powerful Manuel Ponce 20 Variations on Folia de Espaa, dedicated to Segovia, culminates, with a somptous Fugue, this unmissable Guitar recital.
