This spring, the New York Guitar Festival and Arts Brookfield will present two days of performances devoted entirely to the classical and flamenco guitar music of Spain at Brookfield Place.
In recent years, the Festival has focused on taking the guitar into unlikely spaces, such as a day and night of ragas, or within the medieval ambiance of The Met’s Cloisters Museum, or casting it as the new “voice” of silent films. It’s been more than a decade, not since the 2006 Spanish Marathon, that the Festival has specifically concentrated on the country most listeners think of when they hear classical guitar.
Los Sonidos de España/The Sounds of Spain casts a fresh glance at the standard classics and flamenco roots. Joining us are two legendary guitarists, Sharon Isbin and Pepe Romero, who will perform solo and in duos with special guests in the evening concerts. For our afternoon matinees, we welcome to artists who blur the lines between folk, pop, and classical – Adam del Monte and Marija Temo. Expect some singing and dancing during their sets!
