Carlos Nunez: Tuesday night in the amphitheatre
Virtuoso of the Gäita tuned into Quimper
This man from
Galicia - a virtuoso on both flute and the Galician bagpipes, or "Gaïta"
- is perfectly tuned into Quimper and its festival de Cornouaille,
in which he performed for the first time at the age of 13. Having
taken the festival public by storm in 1998, he is back for the second
year running with an ambitious programme.
He is delighted
to be playing once again with the Kemper Bagad, having played with
them before in the Héritage des Celtes. This bagad is top of its class,
with technical prowess and unfailing energy that never cease to amaze.
Knowing Carlos' own virtuoso skill and energy, Tuesday's concert is
likely to be a creative and intense happening...
