Italian classical guitarist Emanuele Segre will perform with the Ra’anana Symphonette under the baton of his compatriot, maestro Carlo Goldstein. The program features Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Guitar Concerto in D Major and Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, as well as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4.

On the eve of his Israeli premiere, Segre, an acclaimed musician says that he started playing guitar at age 11.

“Ours was not a musical family, although my father studied violin in his youth. But when my mother enrolled me in school and had to choose a musical instrument, she opted for the guitar. The reason was that her father had brought an instrument from Latin America, where he worked before WW I. So for her, the choice of instrument was obvious. Luckily enough, I fell in love with the guitar immediately – I loved its sound and its possibilities.”

Segre performs throughout the world with a varied repertoire. “What I especially like about the guitar is that you produce the sound with your own fingers. You touch the strings directly and by that create a sound – that is different from playing violin or cello, where a bow is required.”

The concert takes place on February 9 at 8:30 p.m. at Ra’anana’s Performing Arts Center. For reservations: (09) 745- 7773, For more details: www.symphonette.co.il
