Manuel Barrueco, guitar

“A superb instrumentalist with a seductive sound and uncommon lyrical gifts” (Dallas Morning News), Manuel Barrueco returns to 92Y with a program from two of the most important sources of music for the guitar: Cuba and Spain. Early Spanish colonists brought the guitar to Cuba in the 16th century and, ever since, Cuban and Spanish guitarists have exchanged ideas, teaching methods, music and even the guitarists themselves. Barrueco, himself steeped in these rich traditions, celebrates this centuries-long collaboration.

“A major artist with remarkable musicianship and a world of technique... simply and consistently – awesome.”
