Rob Johns classical guitarist plays in Lincoln

On Saturday evening many of us were treated to a splendid recital from nationally acclaimed guitarist and BH parent Rob Johns at The Lawn in Lincoln.

Rob began with Drum, one of his own compositions and guided us through a wide-ranging performance the first half of which included the first of the five Villa-Lobos guitar preludes written in 1940, a Brazilian Dance from contemporary Argentinian composer J. Morel and  two pieces from Cuban-born composer Leo Brouwer. The second half opened with two pieces from Spanish baroque composer Gaspar Sanz, included a diversion into the world of the Flamenco Guitar and concluded with another of Rob’s own compositions.

All in all this was a fascinating performance enlivened by Rob’s engaging introductions to each of the works and his passionate and thoughtful approach to his playing. Rob plays guitars by the well-known local maker Roy Courtnall and was generous enough to donate the proceeds of the event to the school, for the furtherance of the creative education which we value so highly.
