Scarlatti and Tansman on the Guitar
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Accomplished Italian guitarist Luca Villani offers a wonderful guitar recital dedicated to Scarlatti and Tansman. Some Scarlatti Sonatas sound great on the guitar, evoking a Spanish court made of dark lounges, silky tapestries and a royal atmosphere. Virtuosic and refined music at once. In the second part, Luca celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Polish composer Alexandre Tansman, interpreting masterworks composed for Segovia: from the first Mazurka of 1925 to the gorgeous Passacaille, passing from the poignant Cavatina of 1951 and the Variations on a Theme by Scriabin. Unmissable in the great Greyfriars scenery.
