Sérgio and Odair Assad, guitars
Archival Recording from Sunday, November 20, 2005
The Spanish and Latin American program played by Sérgio and Odair Assad for this performance showcases what these brothers do best—combine their individual virtuosity with a remarkable unity of soul and feeling. Following in the tradition and legacy of the late great Andrés Segovia, the Assads are truly classical guitar super heroes.
SF Performances looks forward to presenting the Assad brothers once again in future season. Until then, we hope you enjoy this memorable concert from their 2005 visit to the Herbst Theatre.
