Spanish Guitar

This evening I went to a solo guitar concert featuring music from Spain and Brazil. The guitarist was Edward Grigassy. It was really nice to hear solo guitar live. I grew up with hearing Spanish guitar from recordings as well as hearing my Mom play. So it always feels familiar when I hear classical guitar. The 1st half of the concert was music from Spain: Serenata Espanola by Malats, Suite Espanola by Albeniz, Herencia Latina by Pena and finally Homage to Debussy and The Millers Dance by de Falla. After intermission was music from Brazil: Suite Popular Brasinena by Villa Lobos, Bossa en Re" by Morel, "Feitico" and "Uma Valsa e Dos Amores" by Reis and finally "Apelo," "Retrato Brasilero" and "Conto de Ossanha" by de Aquino. I then went back stage and talked to him. It was a great concert.
