15 May Cadaqués Orchestra at Rosey Concert Hall
The guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas charmed the audience of Rosey Concert Hall with his passionate performance of the famous Concerto d’Aranjuez by Rodrigo. Though a well-known concerto, to hear it played by a guitarist cited as “the soul of Spanish guitar playing” was a special experience, particularly for the many Roséens who are learning to play the guitar. The dynamic presence and skill of the soloist coupled with the beauty of the music was a real inspiration and it was a pleasure to welcome the musicians of the Cadaqués Orchestra. The evening had a distinct Catalan spark with evocative performances of Asturias and Castilla by Albéniz, concluding with a sublime performance of Beethoven’s 4th Symphony.
