Exploring Spanish Guitar with Jonathan Prag
2 Aug - 27 Aug|
St Columba’s by the Castle|
For three weeks in August, the recognized classical guitarist Jonathan Prag will be performing at Fringe Festival, the alternative section of the Edinburgh International Festival. The show will include pieces by outstanding Spanish composers such as Barrios and Albeniz, making his guitar solo a delightful journey to the musical history of Andalucía.
This is the 7th time that Prag is invited to perform, following his celebrated concerts at some of Edinburgh’s most magical locations. Framed within the romanticism of Albeniz and Barrios’ gentle compositions, Prag’s programme also features pieces that inspired him in his early days, including a Bach Prelude and Fugue, and lyrical contemporary music by Vincent Lindsey Clark and Peter Maxwell Davies, which challenges and delights him.
