We got an email from Vicente Carillo (besides making his own guitars, he is the luthier behind the Tomatito line of flamencos), and he was very excited that Cañizares had just performed the ‘Aranjuez’ at the Teatro Real in Madrid with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Simon Rattle, playing one of Vicente’s guitars. As he put it, a luthier really couldn’t ask for much more. Cañizares (Juan Manuel Cañizares, but everyone just calls him Cañizares) is an amazing flamenco player who toured with Paco de Lucía for years and lately has been nurturing his classical side. He’s kind of an out-there flamenco player (in the best possible way), so for me it’s interesting to hear him go in this direction. Great videos.
