A World First Collaboration

‘The Spirit of Spain’

“Nicholas Young and Matthew Fagan infuse the exhilarating traditional flamenco elements of Spanish Guitar into virtuosic classical piano masterpieces to form stunning new arrangements, celebrating the launch of Fagan’s newest vinyl album “El Vito”.

From the famous folk-inspired ballet music of Manuel de Falla’s “The Three Cornered Hat” to the Spanish dances evoked in Isaac Albeniz’s “Sevilla”, “Asturias” and “Tango”.”
