“A delight;” one word may mean little if it was mine describing the artistry of Marco Socias.
But it was Joaquin Rodrigo who spoke it. The famous composer’s succinct admiration for his fellow Spanish guitarist was confirmed by a full house audience on November 10th, 2012 at the Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ.
Socias’ interpreted a program which demonstrated his mastery of the classical guitar. Having been born in Venezuela, his encore, “El Marabino,” (Antonio Lauro) elicited deep emotions from me. All in all, I hope Marco Socias returns in the not too distant future.
