Nicholas Young: ESPANA Piano-Guitar Recitals: May-June 2018 ~ Melbourne, Flinders, Warragul, Ballarat, Castlemaine


Albeniz – Infante – De Falla – Gismonti – Rodrigo – Lecuona

Dear Lauris and friends of Moving Into Music,

The guitar has always been close to my heart — in fact, it was my first instrument! — and in a few weeks I am thrilled to be collaborating with Melbourne guitarist Matthew Fagan (Billy Connolly 1999 Australian Tour, 2016-17 ‘Lord of the Strings’ Tour) exploring the riches of Spanish repertoire for piano and guitar, from classical to flamenco and modern jazz. If you are in town and love the two instruments as much as us, we would love to see you there! Further tour dates in October to be announced. — Nicholas Young
