Classical Café January: Echoes of Espana –
Jonathan Parkin (Guitar)
Spain and the guitar are synonymous. The guitar is imbued into the fabric of Spanish life and culture, from the streets of Seville to the grand palaces of Madrid. It may seem like a cliché but its role as cultural adhesive throughout Spain’s diverse cultural heritage is an achievement that few other instruments can match.
Described as ‘an immensely gifted and talented musician’ by BBC Radio 3 and winner of numerous national and international guitar competitions, Jonathan’s virtuosic and expressive playing combined with his intimate knowledge of Spanish music and culture means that this concert is not to be missed.
