The Provincial Council of Alicante, through the Foundation of the ADDA Auditorium, wanted to join this project around the guitar, to schedule seven concerts between January and June 2019 with the participation of the teachers of the Master. The seven concerts form the VII Classical Guitar Series of Alicante and undoubtedly, given the extraordinary quality of the performers, constitute an international event of the highest level in the world of classical guitar. After the great success of the six editions, we encouraged all Alicante citizens and visitors to participate in the sixth guitar serie at the ADDA.

As every year we will begin the guitar serie with a classical guitar concert by Scottish guitarist based in Spain David Russell. Works: Introducción & Polonesa by Napoleón Coste,  Suite 7  by G.F. Handel, 2 Preludes by J.S. Bach; Sandy’s Portrait & David’s Portrait by Sérgio Assad.

The second concert will be a solo guitar recital played by Álvaro Pierri, Uruguayan guitarist based in Vienna- Works by I. Albéniz, D.Bogdanovic, W.Wallton, A.Carlevaro, A.Piazzolla, L. Brouwer and A. Barrios. It is the first time he visits this guitar series.

The third  concert is performed by Nigel North, English lutenist based in Bloomington, United States. It is a lute recital entitled “Bach on the lute” composed entirely of works by J.S. Bach.

Pepe Romero on his 75th anniversary tour will be the protagonist of the fourth recital with works by Sor, Bach, Tárrega, Mertz, Granados, Malats, Turina y Celedonio Romero. We wish to celebrate his 75th birthday.

The fifth concert will be performed by the guitarist from Alicante Ignacio Rodes who will form a guitar trio with Paola Requena and Isabel Martínez. We can hear for the first time the performance of this guitar trio.

The sixth concert will feature flamenco guitarist José Manuel Cañizares. Guitarist, musician and composer will be accompanied by Juan Carlos Gómez. They present a program formed by works by Manuel de Falla and compositions by Cañizares himself.

The Cuban guitarist settled in Baltimore, United States, Manuel Barrueco, one of the essentials of the guitar master, with a program entitled “Cuba and Spain” will close this guitar series. Works by Spanish and Cuban composers like Luis de Narváez, Héctor Ángulo, Julián Orbón, Ignacio Cervantes and Enrique Granados.

A wonderful guitar serie. See you in the ADDA!
