Description

A rare New York appearance by Italian guitarist Emanuele Segre in an evening-length work about life, love, and loss, narrated by Symphony Space’s very own Isaiah Sheffer with text by Nobel prize-winning Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez and music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

With hands of dazzling skill and solid technique, Emanuele Segre offers a clean sound and is known for his passionate performance style. Joined by narrator Isaiah Sheffer, the two bring to life Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s evening length work for guitar and narrator, Platero Y Yo, (1914; Platero and I) with poetry by one of Spain’s most popular poets, Juan Ramón Jiménez, who won the Nobel prize in 1956. Jiménez’ work is a entertaining memoir about his travels through Spain with his beloved little donkey, a profound musing on what makes us all human.
