Well we’ve waited over a year for this moment, but the VIDA Guitar Quartet are proud to announce the release of our debut recording Love, the Magician (BGS118) this October 2009.
To mark the launch we will be playing up and down the UK at various venues where you will be able to hear us in the flesh (ahh!) and if you like what you hear you can take a little bit of us home with you in the handy shape of a CD!
Dates on the Love, the Magician tour include:
7 October – St Cuthbert’s Church, Durham (1pm)
8 October – The Performing Arts Centre, Stewart’s Melville College, Edinburgh – also masterclass on this day during the afternoon.
9 October – The Saville Exchange, North Shields (1pm)
22 October – East Malling Research Station Music Club, East Malling, Kent
31 October – Kings Place, London – Masterclass (info from IGF)
All dates are evening recitals except where time is indicated.
Love, the Magician has a distinctly Andalusian flavour with a works by Falla: El Amor Brujo (Love, the Magician), and El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat); Bizet: Carmen Suite; and Joaquín Turina: La Oración del Torero (The Prayer of the Bullﬁghter).
You can have a sneak preview of our Love, the Magician just visit the VIDAGQ website. Let us know what you think and hope we can catch up with you at one of our concerts soon.
Helen (aka V3!)
