Andrew Blanch: Spanish Romance ft. Maria Eugenia Nieva

Andrew Blanch (Guitar)
Guest Artist: Maria Eugenia Nieva (Voice)

Praised as a “rockstar of nylon-acoustic music” (On Sounds), “the real deal” (Classics Today), “dazzling” (ArtsHub) and “brilliant” (Limelight Magazine), Andrew Blanch is regarded as one of Australia’s leading musicians. He is a prizewinner in more than ten international guitar competitions, a finalist for Performance of the Year at the 2022 Australian Art Music Awards, and has released three studio albums to critical acclaim. His career to date has taken him around the world from Berlin to London, São Paulo to Auckland, Valencia and Rome, and this August and September you will have the chance to hear him on his inaugural tour of the USA.

Spanish Romance is a lovingly crafted journey tracing the Spanish guitar from its origins in the European Baroque with a concerto by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi, to masterpieces by 19th century Spanish composers Isaac Albéniz and Francisco Tárrega before finishing with a selection of South American works from Venezuela to Brazil.

The show concludes in Argentina, where Andrew is joined on stage by his partner, Argentinian mezzo-soprano Maria Eugenia Nieva for authentic Argentinian música folklórica. Performing these songs since the age of six, Maria Eugenia’s rich voice transports you directly to her hometown of Mendoza, filling you with joy, romance, nostalgia and everything in between.

Don’t miss out on this enchanting evening; where you will be dazzled by the best of the Spanish guitar, moved by heart-warming melodies and stories, touched with the warmth of the Spanish and Latin American music and culture.
