Suite de Lucía is a tribute concert to Paco de Lucía devised by his official transcriber, David Leiva, and conducted by Joan Albert Amargós. Amargós’ musical experience and great knowledge of flamenco give musicality and new life to some of Lucía’s most representative themes with orchestration for big band.
Taller de Músics and ESMUC join forces to show the public a new dimension of the work of the renowned guitarist from Algeciras. Young musicians from both schools share the stage alongside figures of the stature of Carles Benavent, Antonio Serrano and Rafael de Utrera, artists who accompanied Paco de Lucía during his career.
Suite de Lucía is a co-production by Taller de Músics, L’Auditori and ESMUC, which premiered on Sunday 17th October 2021 as part of the Ciutat Flamenco festival.
*Paco de Lucía’s heirs and the Paco de Lucía Foundation approve and authorize the arrangements and the Suite de Lucía show.

«The work created is simply a marvel. In other words, Friday night’s concert at L’Auditori was not just another night of flamenco. It was a night of music. A success that could be a defining moment for the Ciutat Flamenco event, which this year celebrates its 28th edition»
