Leys Orchestra is honoured to be joined by two top classical guitarists at their concert in December. Chilean musicians Daniela Luksic and Patricio Nuño have been performing and studying in New Zealand for the past 2 years.

Daniela Luksic will perform Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto with the orchestra. Famous for “The Four Seasons” for violin and orchestra, Antonio Vivaldi wrote numerous concertos for different instruments. This transcription for guitar of the original lute concerto comprises two fast movements that frame a beautiful, languid slow movement.

Patricio Nuño will present three solo items for guitar: “Fantasía del Quarto Tono” by the Spanish renaissance composer Luys de Narváez; JS Bach’s “Prelude” from Cello Suite No. 1; and “Julia Florida” by Paraguayan guitarist Agustin Barrios Mangoré.

The programme is completed with the orchestra performing “Symphony No. 97 in C” by Joseph Haydn, “Pavane” by Gabriel Faure, and “Fugue in G Minor” by JS Bach.

Daniela Luksic was born in Chile and graduated with a Bachelor of Music Honours from Universidad Católica de Chile, one of the most prestigious universities in South America. In November 2012 Daniela reached the final round of the Thailand International Guitar Competition. She has performed regularly throughout Chile, and since her arrival in New Zealand has performed as soloist, and in duet and trio recitals, including performances at the Auckland Guitar Society.

Patricio Nuño graduated in 2007 from Universidad Católica de Chile with High Honours in Classical Guitar Performance. After graduation he was Guitar Professor at Universidad de Las Americas (Chile) for 4 years. During his university years he received Master classes from Roberto Aussel, Hopkinson Smith and Roland Dyens. His deep interest in classical and folk music for guitar led him to expand his knowledge and repertoire to jazz, improvisation and Latin music. In 2013 he completed his Master of Music degree at the University of Auckland.
