PEPE ROMERO PLAYS J.S. BACH

Brookfield Place,
Winter Garden
220 Vesey Street

Opening Night of the New York Guitar Festival

Touring the world in celebration of his 70th birthday, legendary classical guitarist Pepe Romero will perform his first and only all-Bach concert in NYC. Bach holds a special place in Romero’s heart as the Chaconne (final movement of the 2nd Partita for Violin by Bach) was among his late father’s favorite classical pieces. Romero played it for his father right before he died 17 years ago and has rarely played it since. Romero’s distinguished career, both as a solo performer and charter member of the "Royal Family of the Guitar," encompasses some 60 albums, multiple White House invitations, Carnegie Hall concerts, and world premieres by Rodrigo and Moreno Torroba, in addition to receiving a Knighthood by King Juan Carlos I of Spain.
