The Teatro Manoel, where Cañizares interpreted Concierto de Aranjuez by Maestro Joaquín Rodrigo, is one of Europe’s oldest theatres. The theatre’s history is clearly reflected in the interior decor.
Last Saturday, Cañizares attended a premiere by the Spanish National Ballet, to commemorate the company’s 40th anniversary, and Antonio Najarro’s, the company’s director, final production. As always, it was a spectacular concert.
Last weekend, we had the opportunity to witness the world premiere of ‘Concierto Mediterráneo’ to the memory of Joaquín Rodrigo, in L’Auditori (Barcelona). The work was written by Cañizares, on commission of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya.
