In that very first Festival of the year 52, in addition to the presence of the Orquesta Nacional de España with Argenta, the two recitals offered by Andrés Segovia –who performed for the first time in Spain after 16 years living abroad– stood out. And to honour the famous Andalusian guitarist, we have chosen the Rioja-born Pablo Sáinz-Villegas –who many have proclaimed today as his natural heir. He will offer a recital with music from his latest album, which tries to capture the soul of the guitar with absolutely emblematic pieces of the instrument, those dedicated to him by composers such as Francisco Tárrega (intensely lyrical and emotional) or Joaquín Rodrigo (extremely colourful and difficult), but also those written for piano by masters such as Granados and Albéniz, many of which have become more popular even on the six strings of the guitar than on the eighty-eight keys of the piano.
