Enchanting music by candlelight
For the fifth year running, the young pianist David Gomez brings his simple yet extremely successful idea for a wonderful concert back to Mallorca. Gomez has hit upon a winning formula for a magical evening – take one piano, a great musician, wonderful music and surround it by the light of 200 flickering candles in an enigmatic setting.
His tours of Spain include some emblematic and really unusual settings for an intimate concert - aqueducts, castles, cemeteries, old car graveyards, and here in Mallorca, lighthouses, castles, a vineyard, and a station. The dates for your diary this year are;
Sunday 02/07/2017, Faro grande del Port d'Andratx
Thursday 13/07/2017, Jardines de la Cartuja de Valldemossa
Sunday 16/07/2017, Claustre del convent de Sant Domingo, Pollença,
Tuesday 01/08/2017, Estación del Tren de Sóller en Bunyola
Thursday 17/08/2017,Finca Son Verd de Vins Can Novell, Sencelles
Wednesday 23/08/2017 and Thursday 24/08, Terraza del Ballroom del Hotel Park Hyatt Mallorca, Urbanización Atalaya de Canyamel, Capdepera
all starting at 22:00.
His Mallorca concerts are really special occasions combining the music; a varied mix of classics, tango, film themes and his own compositions and tickets cost from €20 upwards. You can purchase them on the official website along with merchandise, music and another nice touch is that members of the audience can request a dedication of one of the compositions to a friend or loved one which David Gomez will read out before playing it. What a lovely surprise!
I've used a photo of the Hyatt, which opened only last year to a large and well deserved fanfare, and if you really fancy treating yourselves, why not book a stay there to coincide with the concert? All the details are online in our accommodation section – just click the link.
