In this exciting collaboration between classical guitarist Michael Christian Durrant and flamenco guitarist Samuel Moore, these two distinctive artists look to create a truly unique album by bringing their musical personalities together to explore the fascinating connections between the worlds of classical and flamenco guitar.
Their first collaborative album, entitled ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’, is set for UK release in March 2019 and will include an inspired choice of music from both the classical and flamenco guitar styles. The album will consist of a vivid selection of pieces by well-known Spanish composers, including Isaac Albéníz, Enriqué Granados and Manuel de Falla, alongside an exciting selection of flamenco palos, including Bulerías, Sevillana and Rumba. ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ will contain both solo and duet performances, and the resulting collection of tracks promises to take the listener on a truly unique musical journey into the heart of Spain’s colourful musical heritage.
