Alexandre Tansman's guitar music was almost exclusively created as the result of his friendship with the legendary Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia. The true extent of this catalogue has only recently become apparent, with unknown works emerging from archive sources. Performed after careful research into the original manuscripts, Andrea De Vitis's programme brings together pieces that reference Tansman's favorite musicians from history, in particular Bach and Chopin- masterfully intertwining personal affections with sophisticated techniques to create some of the most important guitar repertoire of the 20th century.
