Edoardo Catemario

Sor 4 Études Introduction and Variations on a Theme by Mozart Op. 9 Falla Homenaje: pièce de guitare écrite pour 'Le Tombeau de Claude Debussy' Danza del Molinero Tárrega Lagrima Marieta Maria Recuerdos de la Alhambra Albéniz Capricho catalan from España Torre Bermeja (arr. for guitar) Sevilla from Suite española (arr. for guitar) Bach Chaconne in D minor BWV1004 (arr. for guitar) Kazuhiko Hattori Three Pieces for guitar Regondi Introduzione e capriccio Op. 23

Wigmore Hall 25th March 2012

Edoardo Catemario offered a recital on three guitars including a late period Lacôte, an 1894 Torres and a 1918 García.

The Sor Etudes on an authentic guitar created a light and bright start to the programme and were very well executed. The Introduction and Variations offered strong distinctions between variations and a very brave finale tempo, which was easily accomplished by Caremario.

The Tárrega works performed on a period instrument were colourful and provided a nice set idea to the programme.

Falla’s Homenaje was dark and mysterious with a great end. The Millers Dance, a difficult arrangement was well executed by Catemario. Albéniz’s Capricho catalán was swiftly but nicely played. Torre Bermeja yet another demanding arrangement was well executed and pleasantly noted was the echo of the melody line in the meno mosso being raised up an octave.

In the Hattori Three Pieces for guitar there were some very sweet and clear sounds drawing the listener in, creating a peaceful and reflective atmosphere. Catemario, clearly a very accomplished player with wide breadth of tone colours and musicality can hopefully return once again to the Wigmore Hall.
