Juan Serrano
Flamenco Guitarist
Tuesday Evening, July 2, 1974, at 8:30 Rackham Auditorium, Ann Arbor, Michigan
A flamenco study by Maestro Serrano dedicated to his daughter.
A dance of intricate and fiery footwork.
Traditional rhythms alterating between bold and tranquil moods.
Songs from Linares and Jaen, used by miners to accompany their work.
Alegrias de Cadiz
Gay and lively flamenco of the city of Cadiz.
A fandango from Malaga--serious and gentle, reflecting the spirit of a people who live by the sea.
Fantasia (Zambra)
Melodies reflecting the Arabic influence around Granada.
Sometimes tender, erupting with boundless passion, this is the mother of flamenco.
El Emigrante
Variations by Serrano on a song by Serrapi and Valderramas.
Romeras (in C major)
Based on rhythms of Cadiz.
Nostalgia (Guajiras)
Flamenco song based on very complicated alternating 68 and 34 time. The Cuban rhythms of this composition are Maestro Serrano's most recent work.
Dances concluding with freestyle passage that are "hammeredon" entirely with the left hand.
Believed to be from Andalucia, this is reminiscent of Jewish music; the dance that is per?formed with it must express the tragedy of despair that has often been the fate of man.
Mantillas de Feria (Esteban de San Lucar) Inspired by Spanish classical music.
Fiery rhythms of Andalucia, in southern Spain.
