Pablo Sáinz Villegas & Friends: Americano Tour in New York
Spanish guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas presents a new program that journeys across the Americas, and is joined on stage by Pedro Giraudo on bass and Nacho Arimany on percussion.
Pablo Sáinz Villegas is known for his passionate, emotive, and open-hearted playing, whether he is performing at intimate recital halls or playing with beloved tenor, Plácido Domingo, to an audience of over 85,000 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, where Domingo hailed him as “the master of the guitar.”
Having just signed a record deal with Sony Music, and soon releasing a duo album with Plácido Domingo, Sáinz Villegas continues through an auspicious 17-18 season, with such engagements as a tour with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, recitals at the prestigious National Performing Arts Center in Beijing, Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival Orchestra at the Millennium Park in Chicago, performances with the New Zealand Symphony, the Norwegian Radio Orchestra in Oslo, and Orquesta de Minería in Mexico City, to name a few.
