Guitar Solos
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Luca Villani performs a masterworks anthology to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the death of Andrs Segovia, the greatest guitarist of all time. Starting with Renaissance evocative Aria con Variazioni by Frescobaldi and classical Fernando Sor Variations on a Mozart theme, Luca interprets the flamenco rooted Sevilla by Isaac Albniz and its flamboyant twin Sevillana by Joaquin Turina. The second part includes joyful Sonata Mexicana by Manuel Ponce, intimate Remembranza and Estudio sin luz by the same Segovia, Villa-Lobos Etudes 1 and 8, culminating with the fierce Rodrigo Fandango. Don't miss five centuries of pure six string delight.
