“… Everything had just the right amount of personality, without too much sensationalism, highlighting secret details, with an air of Discovery. The musicians and the director applauded the guitarist…”

In this show, Cañizares reveals a new and original version of Manuel de Falla’s music thanks to an unusual combination: guitars, castanets, percussion and flamenco dance. In the second half, he shows us his personal vision of flamenco music through his own compositions.
Flamenco music had such an impact on great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla that, together with poet García Lorca, he organised the first every “Cante Jondo” competition in 1922 in Granada. Falla integrated different flamenco nuances in his compositions: harmonies, melodies, rhythms, etc… 100 years later,
Cañizares has awakened and recreated the flamenco soul that lay dormant in his scores and taken it to the stage. Cañizares opens the second half of the show with his own flamenco music, selected from the “Cuerdas del Alma” album. He maintains that the concept is that “symbolically, people have strings in their souls by way of a musical instrument. Our experiences and desires “play” on those strings of the soul to provoke resonances of sadness, joy, illusion or love.”
From his musical maturity, Cañizares reveals a landscape of emptions that he plays on the strings of his soul and his guitar, making them vibrate with the strings of the soul of his audience.
