This video shows excerpts of one of the most amazing concert debuts I've ever seen. My 12-year-old student Leonora Spangenberger played the following programme:
Prelude, Fuge and Allegro by J. S. Bach
4:42 3 Tentos by H. W. Henze
7:38 Etude 2 by H. Villa-Lobos
8:46 Passacaglia by A. Tansman
13:47 Six Aires from "The Magic Flute" by Fernando Sor
17:38 Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega
19:23 Prelude 4 by H. Villa-Lobos
Guitar: Nicolaus Wollf (2011)
Have fun watching the video!
I agree with Yisrael—outstanding performance. I was really stunned by the Henze and Tansman performances especially and would love to hear the full versions. Congratulations to Leonora.
"In music I think it's very, very dangerous if you start to compare and say, 'This is good, this is not good, this is only one possibility' . . . there are so many possibilities, but what is important is to be open to that." - Pavel Steidl
A really talent , and only 12?- gives hope for the future of Classical Guitar with such talents around. I was mostly impressed by Drei Tentos. This piece requires a kind of musical maturity - that you would not expect from a 12 year old. But she does it so well. - Would be nice with a link to the full concert
"..don't be afraid to miss a note. Being afraid is the only way you are sure to miss it.."
Congratulations to Lenora. She has a wonderful rapport with her guitar. So expressive, as if she and her guitar are having a very special conversation that we are lucky enough to hear. Loved listening and watching. Thanks for sharing with us all.
