The program includes the ‘Fantasy for a Gentleman’, a work by the most celebrated composer for guitar, Joaquín Rodrigo, built on a handful of short,17th- century folk dances. Boccherini’s guitar quintet was written for the Duke of Benavente-Osuna, the current Andalucía. The Fandango from this quintet is a particularly warm-blooded part, during which castanets are also being played.
