CONCIERTO DE ARANJUEZ
CAÑIZARES & CBSO
Thursday March 23rd. 7:30 pm
Birmingham Symphony Hall
The flamenco guitarist Juan Manuel Cañizares will be playing a full programme including Rodrigo's famous Concierto de Aranjuez at the wonderful Birmingham Symphony Hall. Full details of the concert and booking can be found here.
Cañizares had excellent reviews when he played this concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle - it was described as the most significant event since the concerto was written.
The programme includes Manuel de Falla's Three Cornered Hat. We probably all have recordings of the Rodrigo Concerto and together with the de Falla are probably the most played classical guitar music on the radio. However I personally have never seen a live performance of either and to see and hear Cañizares bring his own style and magic to the performance will be an unmissable treat.
