Winchester Cathedral - Saturday 23rd September 2017

Michael will be returning to Winchester Cathedral on Saturday 23rd September for a very special evening concert in which he will be performing alongside the Winchester Cathedral Chamber Choir and flamenco guitarist Samuel Moore

Entitled Guitarra, el Corazón de España (Guitar, the Heart of Spain), the centrepiece of this concert will be a performance of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Romancero Gitano, Op. 152 for guitar and choir. Written for Andrés Segovia in 1951, Romancero Gitano is a concerto for guitar with chorus, based on the timeless poetry of Federico Garcia-Lorca. Most of the poetry that Tedesco selected to set for this work comes from the 1921 collection entitled Poema del Canto Jondo (Poem of Deep Song), a title that refers to the cante jondo in flamenco music. Performed alongside solo and duet performances with Samuel Moore, this programme promises to be a one of this year's standout concerts in the classical guitar calendar.
