España El Vito the Spirit of Spain and Tango
Internationally acclaimed pianist, Nicholas Young and renowned 10 String Guitarist Matthew Fagan return with a new program featuring Spanish classical to flamenco, Tango and modern jazz.
Continuing their ground-breaking 2018 tour collaborations including SOLD OUT shows at the Sydney Opera House – Utzon Room, Internationally acclaimed, award winning concert pianist, ‘Young Steinway Artist’ Nicholas Young joins internationally renowned 10-string virtuoso Guitarist Matthew Fagan, combining musical passion and virtuosity to celebrate the Spirit of Spain, El Vito and Tango.
The duo perform Spanish repertoire from classical to flamenco, plus the colourful and rhythmic sounds of Tango, South American Classical and Latin masterpieces and modern jazz infusing the exhilarating traditional flamenco elements of Spanish Guitar with the classical, virtuoso pianism. The duo transform masterpieces by Joaquin Rodrigo, Isaac Albeniz, Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Astor Piazzolla, Chick Corea, Maurice Ravel, and more into stunning new arrangements.
“There’s no doubt pianist, Nicholas Young, and guitarist, Matthew Fagan, are virtuosi. Their credentials are undeniable and their technical skills were quite astounding, especially their precise timing. Even long vivace sequences of notes played in unison were perfect. The pairing of the piano and guitar was an inspired choice. There was a beautiful complementarity between the two.
Clinton White Canberra Reviewers Circle
This reviewer found the class of playing better than almost any other performance he has heard. The capacity audience gave a standing ovation and deservedly so.
