La Ritirata performs in Tel Aviv

A true highlight of the concert was Zapico’s poetic theorbo performance of Sanz’ “Españoletas”, one of Spain’s most beautiful melodies, set in variation form; Zapico’s playing displayed the height of delicacy and musical shaping, producing music of the senses that thrilled the audience.

Lalo and Zapico’s (theorbo) poignant performance of Falconieri’s “La Suave Melodia” was true magic.
