Debut Concert by Leonora Spangenberger (12) at Eggenburg Guitar Festival

Post by Stefan Schmidt » Sun Oct 18, 2015 12:32 pm

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.

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 :-)

Wow, what a substantial program and great playing. It seems that more and more people are playing the Tansman these days--good to hear!

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.

Wonderful rendition. And the guitar has an outstanding sound too. It's a Santos copy, made by Carl-Hermann Schäfer alias Nicolaus Wollf, I guess.
