Classical and Flamenco guitar virtuoso Grisha Goryachev performs in "España" as part of the Edmonton Chamber Music Society's Summer Solstice Festival.

Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian and guitarist Grisha Goryachev lead a journey of discovery into the musical soul of Spain through haunting songs by Manuel de Falla and Fernando Obradors to flamenco infused works by Albéniz, Enrique Arbós, and Manolo Sanlúcar. Joaquin Turina’s Piano Quartet, an intense and lyrical evocation of the composer’s Andalusian roots, brings the journey to a dramatic conclusion.

Goryachev will also be performing in Calgary on June 27th.  Click here for more information.
