Guitar superstar Slava Grigoryan joins Sydney Chamber Choir for an evening of Spanish fire. From whispering lullabies to wild flamenco, the guitar conjures whole worlds of emotion. Add the infinite subtleties of the human voice, and the stage is set for passion! The sensuous gypsy moods of the Romancero Gitano are at the heart of this musical feast; also on the menu, two Australian lullabies arranged for choir and guitar by composers Peter Sculthorpe and Gerard Brophy, and a rich spread of Spanish Renaissance music.
Featured non-Australian music: Ave Virgo Sanctissima (Guerrero), Tota Pulchra Es (Guerrero), Ave Regina Caelorum (Lobo), La Torre Bermeja (Albeniz), Selections from Tonadillas for soprano solo and guitar (Granados), Romancero Gitano for choir and guitar (Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco)
