NEW YORK – Widely admired as “the soul of the Spanish guitar,” Pablo Sáinz Villegas played to a rapt audience at a reception and dinner hosted by Sotheby’s George Wachter and Christopher Apostle at the New York galleries. In honour of the evening, held in partnership with Sentient Jet, Sáinz Villegas paired four compositions with four works he chose from the upcoming Master Paintings & Sculpture Evening sale. Among the pictures that Sáinz Villegas felt especially connected to were a still life by Velázquez and a Venetian view by Michele Marieschi. “Art is a journey of intimate emotions,” said the guitarist. At the end of the performance he received a well-deserved standing ovation.
