Puppets and Strings
An evening of classical guitar and characterful ballet closes our Canterbury season.
Spell-binding guitarist Sean Shibe “an artist blessed with grace to spare” (BBC Music Magazine) brings his spectacular virtuosity to two Malcolm Arnold works. Both the Serenade and his concerto contain Arnold’s trademark ear for melody and lush, Hollywood-inspired sound.
Stravinsky’s Petrushka completes the programme with musical fireworks. One of the composer’s best-loved works, it tells the fantastical tale inspired by Russian legend of three puppets brought to life at a Shrovetide fair. Stravinsky fused traditional folk songs with his own vivid musical storytelling to create this timeless masterpiece.
