Tribute to Carlos Paredes

In Quinta dos Vales on Friday, April 13th 2012, at 9pm Miguel Drago presents a work on portuguese guitar based on songs by Carlos Paredes and accompanied by Pedro Frias. In this concert classical themes are mixed with the intent of demonstrating portuguese guitar as a solo instrument, the duo has already presented this work in several locations around the country.
The portuguese guitar is essentially linked with accompanying Fado, both in the Lisbon and the Coimbra interpretations, nevertheless it has also been used as a solo instrument, probably since its inception.
It is this side of the guitar that the performers will show in this Tribute, with focus on renowned composers/interpreters of the 20th century, like Carlos Paredes and Artur Paredes, João Bagão, Armando Freire (Armandinho), José Nunes, Jaime Santos or José Fontes Rocha. The sounds of these instruments' cords are intimately combined and transport you straight to Portugal's roots.
A unique show, full of musicality and virtuosity. Not to be missed!
The tickets, which cost 18,00EUR and include a glass of wine, can be purchased at Quinta dos Vales or reserved by calling 282 431 036 or e-mailing, and can be picked up on the day of the concert.
