Rafael Riqueni has regrettably had to cancel his performance in New York due to an injury that prevents him from playing the guitar. From Flamenco Festival, we wish the maestro a speedy recovery, while also expressing our regret for any inconvenience this may cause to the audience. Instead, we invite you to enjoy the recital by the young talent Alejandro Hurtado.

Despite his youth, his exceptional technique, clean execution, and incredible expressive power allow him to convey the most intense sensations to the audience every minute he is on stage. If we add to this his creative talent, as evidenced by his compositions for solo guitar, we can confidently say that Alejandro Hurtado, more than a promise in the world of guitar, is already one of the most outstanding performers of concert flamenco guitar of our time. His performances exhibit a sobriety of elements that is uncommon in today’s flamenco guitar concerts. In a way, he aims to connect with the tradition of past guitarists like Montoya, Niño Ricardo, or Sabicas, advocating for the role of the concert guitar as a solo instrument.
