Salvador Sanchez ignites Florence the Terra del Fuego
Terra del Fuego indeed as this young Spanish pianist /composer ignited the already torrid heat in Florence with a scintillating display of ‘joie de vivre’ as rays of sunlight just shot from his agile fingers.

A Wanderer Fantasy where Schubert’s youthful energy and brilliance were matched with intelligence and sublime beauty as Salvador Sanchez with his noble opening statement took us on a long and intricate journey. From the heroic opening, the teasing fun of the scherzo to the very heart of the Wanderer. It was here that Salvador’s romantic soul allowed the sublime variations to seduce and beguile before the astonishing pyrotechnics of the fugato.
