Portuguese guitar present at LGT Young Soloists

Representing Portugal, guitarist Ricardo Martins explained that the Portuguese guitar is perhaps the most important instrument in Portugal, and that it accompanies the fado that, in 2011, was declared intangible heritage of humanity by UNESCO.

During the festival, which was transmitted in a virtual way through Youtube, the Portuguese musician interpreted the theme “Santa Cecília”, of his authorship, and which will be inserted in his new album, which is on recording.

On the other hand, Eduardo Méndez, director of the National System of Orchestras and Youth and Children’s Choirs of Venezuela, explained that it was necessary to devise solutions to give continuity, in digital format, to the festival, specifying that this was the 8th edition.

The festival, which also marked the 45th anniversary of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, had the collaboration of the School of Music “Mozarteum” in Caracas, the Instituto Camões and the embassies of Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, among others.

The pianists Luana Kaslin (France), Anna Miernik (Poland) and Hector Docx (Germany) also participated in the festival, as young guest soloists.

Violinists Lucilla Rose Mariotti (Italy), Emma Rhebergen (from the Netherlands), guitarist David Antigüedad (Spain), and cellist Cristoph Croisé (Switzerland) were also part of the event.
