Hi George, what a wonderful performance! I really enjoyed it. I specially like the sovereign way how you handle this piece. Very masterly!!! Surely your experience in Spain helped you interpreting this piece so well.
And thanks for pics of those beautiful dancers. Usually I'd be more interested in male dancers, but among those dancers in your pics the girls look much more attractive :roll:

Hi George,
wow, that´s really an original spanish feeling while listening to your splendid performance. I didn´t know that piece and I have to say, I enjoyed your playing thoroughly. The excellent recording technique and sound-quality makes it a double pleasure. It´s like listening to a CD. Bravo on the whole line!
I also enjoyed the pictures, I have never seen flamenco dancers in reality, I have to admit.

Hello Hye-Jin and Andreas, and thank you for your kind remarks. I am very glad that you enjoyed this piece. It was actually by coincidence that I happened to visit the birthplace of Zambra Gitana in my travels a few years ago. Spain is so unique and such a varied land of rich landscapes, history, peoples, cultures, religions, art, music, food, etc... I tried to capture the diversity of through contrasting musical textures in this little piece...

Hi!

Maybe you found the best way to preserve memories of your tour to Spain - just play some music that really fits...
Thanks for sharing this piece of music, so rich of imaginations!
