“Baroque Flamenco” is one of my most-performed pieces and I LOVE hearing all the different ways people play it.   I also love hearing about each person’s journey with piece, what they’ve learned from it and how they make it their own.

At least once a week I see new performances of it on YouTube, or get a request for the license to perform it as a concerto with symphony, or chamber ensemble.  So I created this page to collect all.  I also created an interview series where harpists who play “Baroque Flamenco” can share videos and stories of their version of the piece – from concerts, contests, television shows – or in barns, in attics, in theaters, on the street – in living rooms, in kitchens, on subways – or reinventing it to play for hospice or bedside.

Scroll down to link to performances of “Baroque Flamenco” by musicians all over the world, along with their stories about what they learned from the piece and how they’ve adapted it for their own performance.

Do you WANT to play Baroque Flamenco?

The solo harp sheet music includes 3 levels: advanced beginner, intermediate & professional. Other versions include harp ensemble, piano/harp duo (piano reduction), concerto and upcoming chamber ensemble versions.

My online class "Baroque Flamenco Beyond the Page" takes you through the piece step by step at all 3 levels, with videos of all the sections and special effects, breakdowns (to show you how the piece is put together) and a set of warmups to help you develop the rhythms.

See how THEY play it …

Each performer brings something different to this piecesometimes it’s subtle, like a different interpretation, or a different choice of which version they play.  Sometimes it’s dramatic – like playing it on a different instrument, or adding costumes or dancers. 

Click on each blogpost to see each version and learn about the process each performer went through to bring themselves and their unique creative expression to the piece.

“When I play Baroque Flamenco, the listeners are always amazed because they did not expect such a music of a harp.  Often they even have tears in their eyes.”
