Keyboard maestro Javier Perianes

He has chosen to perform at Parbold some of the most celebrated music by three of the greatest Spanish composers of the early 20th century: Enrique Granados, Isaac Albeniz and Manuel de Falla.

Albeniz’s Iberia and Granados’ Goyescas are well-loved and particularly popular among audiences.

Falla’s El Amor Brujo (Love, the Magician) is a glorious depiction of gypsy life, featuring dances from his exciting and enchanting ballet.

The concert takes place at the Parbold Village Hall auditorium at 7.45pm on Saturday May 14.

Tickets are £5 for young people and students, and adult tickets are £20. They can be booked by visiting the website www.parbolddouglasmusic.org, emailing [email protected] or by phoning 01257 498452.

Following Perianes’s performance, concert-goers will be able to attend two more concerts before the end of the season:

Alina Ibragimova (Saturday June 4), performing dazzling virtuosic pieces for solo vioin; and

Nelson Goerner (Saturday June 11) who closes the season with some of the most technically demanding works written for the piano.
