Concert Information

Close your eyes and dream of Spain. Roberto Gerhard heard brilliant colours and impossible dreams; Manuel de Falla felt the blazing heat of his native Andalusia; Claude Debussy saw sunlit fiestas, and Maurice Ravel savoured the perfumes of a Mediterranean night. But they each transformed them into music as warm, as colourful and as intoxicating as that extraordinary land itself. Juanjo Mena is joined by one of world’s finest living guitarists Craig Ogden, who performs in Takemitsu’s musical dreamscape, and Rodrigo’s deliciously tuneful 'Fantasía para un gentilhombre'.

This concert is part of Craig Ogden’s Guitar Weekend Friday 16 – Sunday 18 January. See bridgewater-hall.co.uk for more details.
