Virtuoso Spanish guitarist to play in Bishkek

Spanish guitarist Guillem Perez-Quer

BISHKEK (TCA) — Tourist company Asia for Adventure led by Spanish businessman Ricardo Tomas Herrero is presenting a unique project featuring virtuoso Spanish guitarist Guillem Perez-Quer who will perform in Bishkek.    

On April 23, at 18:30 at the Kyrgyz State Philharmonic, Guillem Perez-Quer will give a concert with the program “The Golden Age of guitar music” and, together with the Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra conducted by Nura Omurbaeva, he will present the musical composition Aranjuez Concert (El Concierto de Aranjuez), a work of outstanding Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo.

On April 23, from 12:00 to 18:00 the Kyrgyz State Philharmonic will host a fair of flowers and books provided by the Bishkek City Council.

April 23 is a beautiful Spanish holiday of St. George’s Day – Valentine’s Day in Spain (La Diada de Sant Jordi). The popularization of the festival comes to the 1923 Day of honoring two great writers – Spaniard Miguel de Cervantes and the Englishman William Shakespeare, who passed away on April 23, 1616. 2016 is the anniversary date. And the legend of how St George slew the dragon and the princess gave a red rose grown out of the dragon’s blood drops. That’s why on April 23 Barcelona is literally strewn with bouquets of red roses. Traditionally, young men give their girls red roses and the girls give books to boys.

According to Ricardo Tomas Herrero, the project is aimed at consolidation and development of international relations through the organization of socio-oriented cultural events of the country.
