Mallorca Daily Bulletin - Mallorca,
Displaying a highly developed musical sense, young Californian
guitarist Terrence Farrell ranged over a wide selection of works in his
recital at the Guitar Centre, which began with a flawless rendering of
the prelude and allegro of Fernando Sor to a masterful performance of
Agustin Barrios' La Catedral and a three-part work in the South
American style written expressly for him by American Composer Guy Horn.
The amazing warmth of his Hauser guitar also brought to new life the Villa-Lobos
Fifth Prelude and Chôro and three pieces by Francisco Tárrega
which, although often included in the concert repertoire, are seldom played
with the deep romantic feeling of the century in which they were written.
The packed audience at the Guitar Centre brought Terrence back for a final
encore and he played the fiery Danza Paraguaya of Barrios, with
During his stay in Palma, Terrence also sat in at the Mallorca Music Club's
Saturday Afternoon get-together and in the more informal setting showed
wit and charm with an 1860's piece called The Minstrel Song and
the well-known Forbidden Games to yet another appreciative audience.
The Guitar Centre is looking forward to the return of Mr. Farrell next
year when he will once again be giving concerts in Europe.
