About this concert
Hailed by Classical Guitar as ‘one of the true stars of the 21st century’, the renowned Brazilian guitarist Fabio Zanon returns to Wigmore Hall to play Benjamin Britten’s seminal Nocturnal, written exactly fifty years ago.
His programme includes favourite works by Bach and Granados, and Sergio Assad’s virtuosic depiction of watercolour technique, Aquarelle.
Gilbert dropped by last month – always an occasion for food, musical discussion and philosophy.
He was insistent, though, that we had time together – alone. Normally my reaction would be “uh oh – what new scheme has he hatched”, but I knew it was different this time.
