fabulous. Pepe was incredible, and so was the New West Symphony. The Concierto de Aranjuez that featured Pepe on guitar was so impressive and so moving. It was already one of my favorite classical pieces, but I had never heard it performed live before. To hear Pepe, who is from Spain, play that piece, was a once in a lifetime experience. The very last piece of the night was also great, with symphony members getting up and leaving as part of the performance! Music sure does tell a story. Loved the whole experience. And the audience gave Pepe a standing ovation in the middle of the show!
Quotes & Highlights
Romero “makes his guitar talk.” —New York Times
World famous Sir Pepe Romero performs one of the most recognized works from film, the eloquent Rodrigo Concierto. The haunting slow movement has inspired filmmakers and artists all over the world. Pepe Romero, who worked with the composer, is acclaimed for his inspiring performance of this work. Romero also performs the Vivaldi Guitar Concerto.
The afternoon begins with Bizet’s delightfully high-spirited Symphony in C and ends with Haydn’s (Farewell) Symphony no. 49. At this performance, the New West Symphony will perform the theatrical joke exactly as Haydn intended in 1722. An unforgettable afternoon in the theater!
