Canto Hispanico draws together inspired and evocative musical settings by an esteemed international roster of composers: Morten Lauridsen (USA), Alberto Ginastera (Argentina), Einojuhani Rautavaara (Finland), Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (Italy), and Manuel de Falla (Spain).
Noted Seattle guitarist, Michael Partington, will return to our stage for Romancero Gitano by Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Partington is director of the Guitar Program at the University of Washington. Praised by Classical Guitar Magazine for his "lyricism, intensity and clear technical command," this award-winning British guitarist has performed internationally as a soloist and with ensembles to unanimous critical praise.
