Entre cielo y tierra - Between heaven and earth

"Of all the composer-guitarists Barrios is the best of all. His music is more well-structured, it is poetic, in fact it has more of everything!“ This is a comment made by the Australian guitarist, John Williams, which expresses his enthusiasm about the Paraguayan composer and Latin America's first guitar virtuoso, Agustín Barrios Mangoré (1885-1944). Some of this composer's works testify to his deep religiousness, and are the main focus of this year's six o'clock concerts. You will also hear music from the Baroque period by Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Philipp Telemann, including Bach's lute music which is considered a gem by every guitarist. In contrast the programme will also spotlight the transcriptions of Telemann's violin fantasies. In addition Stefan Grasse will play his own compositions, who's content and atmosphere were inspired by these great idols.
