Three reasons to hear Pepe Romero:
1. To millions around the world, Pepe is the greatest living guitar master. Yet he plays as if only for you.
2. Who gets to hear a guitar legend perform music inspired by the romantic Alhambra Palace ... livestreamed from his home in the foothills of Granada?
3. Pepe’s concerts are always sold-out events, and this is the first chance to hear him since a November 2019 recital in Montreal.
Don’t miss the guitarist The New York Times calls “astonishing” in a deeply personal concert streamed from his home in Spain. Program includes Bach (“I feel that Bach’s music is directly the sound of God”) and Spanish guitar works, closing with an intimate solo version of the gorgeous Adagio from Rodrigo’s masterpiece, Concierto de Aranjuez.
