TICKETS ON SALE NOW AT REPERTORIO.ORG

 

SUITE HISPANIAin conjunction with REPERTORIO ESPANOL is pleased to present AMORES QUEBRADOS (Broken Love), the love songs of Federico Garcia Lorca, music, song, and flamenco recital under the musical direction of Ignacio Prego.  AMORES QUEBRADOS will play eight performances only at Repertorio Español’s Gramercy Arts Theatre (138 East 27th Street, NYC). Performances begin Thursday, August 11 and continue through Sunday, August 21.  Press are invited to all performances.

 

 

 

 

A delightful musical event that explores Federico García Lorca’s many talents: poet, composer and pianist. At first glance, Lorca’s songs seem to speak about Spain’s history, its landscapes and its traditions, but they also whisper suggestive flirts, passionate aspirations, lost loves and feelings that transcend frontiers and pre-conceptions.

 

“Amores quebrados” explores aspects of Lorca as poet, composer, and pianist. In his musical arrangements and compositions one can hear popular songs as well as the zéjeles (poems sung by the Spanish Arabs) of Al Andalus, the melodies of Ancient Persia, the ballads of the Middle Ages, and the melodic laments of Jews, Byzantines, and Gypsies who left their mark on Andalusian poetry and on the cante jondo (deep song) of flamenco. Lorca, the musician who became a poet, was also inspired by many classical composers whose works he greatly treasured.

 

What the press has said about Suite Hispania and its musical director, Ignacio Prego:

 

“Startling intensity… concentrated energy… breathtaking!”-Washington Post;

 

“[Ignacio Prego] is one of the Spanish pianists with the most range and versatility on the classical scene.”–El Mundo, Spain;

 

“The piano was perfectly apposite in that it produced an enviable sound, in addition to his possessing a sense of rhythm, which he made to appear as if it were easy.”-International Festival of Segovia Juan de Borbón Foundation, Spain;

 

Delighted the audience with exquisite sonority, great agility, examples of technical control and perfection”– Diario Insular de Menorca, Spain.
 

“Extraordinary versatility … they came to exquisiteness!”  -The Journal Scherzo
 

With fourteen musical numbers Amores quebrados will enthrall audiences and introduce them to the talent of world renowned performers including Salva de María (flamenco guitar), María Martínez (cello), Odei Lizaso (percussion), Ignacio Prego (piano), Amaya Arberas (soprano), and Nélida Tirado (flamenco and classical Spanish dance).
