Let’s hope he graces our stage again in the future
Dazzling fingerwork could be heard in Sor’s Variations on a Theme by Mozart.
In complete contrast, Grace painted a beautiful Spanish vista in Two Pieces from Suite Espanola, by piano composer Isaac Albeniz.
One can only hope that Port Elizabeth will continue to host concerts of such diverse nature, and that this celebrated artist will again grace our stages in future.

Most Expressive Playing
Cape Town guitarist James Grace joined the orchestra in Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and showed that he is a top-class player with a total command of his instrument. The slow movement has made the name and fortune of this concerto, and the haunting main theme was played most expressively.
Grace demonstrates his impeccable technique and mastery of Spanish musical styles with works by Albéniz, Sor, Rodrigo, Malats, de Falla, Granados and Tárrega. Grace’s recordings are an essential addition to the collection of any fans of classical or flamenco music as well as guitar aficionados.
