Enchantments of Iberia
Date: Friday, July 27, 2012
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Performers: The Odeum Guitar Duo, Robert Wetzel and Fred Benedetti
Type: Musical Performance
Because of the richness of the unique sonority that two Spanish guitars can provide, the Odeum Guitar Duo unequivocally lends itself to expressing the intrinsic qualities of music from the Iberian Peninsula: sparkling virtuosity, expressions of ardor, elegant restraint, lucid and delicate webs of interacting melodic fluctuations inspired by Moorish elements as well as surprising rhythmic and harmonic combinations. Enjoy an evening with the Odeum Guitar Duo as they trace the music of Iberia expressed through the region’s most popular instrument, the Spanish guitar, times two. Musical works by Scarlatti, Albéniz, Granados, Turina, de Falla and others reflect the Museum’s collection of Spanish masterpieces from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
