Staff Recommendations: Pedro Soler & Gaspar Claus



Pedro Soler Gaspar Claus

I’m not an expert on flamenco by any stretch — in fact, I’d say I know nothing about flamenco — and I knew nothing of Pedro Soler & Gaspar Claus until about a month ago. But since I got the duo’s new album Barlande I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. Their performances are playful, atmospheric, widely varied, and incredibly beautiful. So much of the album is unexpected. It ranges from avant-garde to traditional flamenco, jazzy dialogue to more classical tinged passages. If you’re going to take a risk on one show you know little to nothing about in April, make it this one. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
