On this occasion, Cañizares offers an original contrast thanks to his flamenco music and that of great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla.
The concert begins with a solo by Cañizares, a fantasy for flamenco guitar entit- led “Añorando el Presente” (Nostalgia for the present) with a Malagueña air. An excellent opportunity to enjoy the value of the silence and depth provided by six strings.
Juan Carlos Gómez then joins him with a second guitar, and they delight us with magnificent rhythms and melodies that form the essence of flamenco guitar. All the compositions are originals by Cañizares.
A musical mid-concert parenthesis allows us to savour the magnificent crea- tions of famous composer Manuel de Falla. Cañizares and Juan Carlos play two pieces by the Cadiz-born master taken from the “Falla by Cañizares” trilogy, awakening the flamenco soul that lay dormant in the scores of this Spanish musical genius.
