The musical program at the Ohrid Summer Festival tonight continues with a concert by Spanish artists Antonio Serrano and Constanta Lechner.

The virtuoso of the oral harmonica Serrano together with the pianist Lechner at the St. Sofia Church at 9 pm will perform Spanish dances by the famous composers Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Pablo de Sarasate, as well as compositions by Francisco Tarega, Astor Piazzola and Carlos Gustavo .

Antonio Serrano acquires his education under the mentorship of the famous Larry Adler. His impressive technical abilities on the chromatic oral accordion enabled him to explore different musical styles, and so his repertoire consists of works of classical music, to works of jazz, tango and flamenco music. Thanks to this, Serrano becomes one of the most important improvisers of its generation. Great popularity allows him to collaborate with some of the most important Spanish musicians, including the famous guitarist Paco de Lucia. In addition, he also performed with several symphonic orchestras in the world, and recorded music for some of the films of the famous world director Pedro Almodovar. His discography collection includes even 11 custom sound carriers.

Pianist Constanta Lechner has the first contact with this instrument at the age of two. She completes her studies at the San Lorenzo del Escorial Conservatory, while studying harpsichord, old music, a modern piano and jazz at the Madrid School of Creative Music. This versatile approach to music has enabled collaboration with various symphonic orchestras and performers from Spain and the world. Besides music scenes in his native country, Lechner has also performed in France, Greece, Jordan, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Turkey, Cyprus, Bahrain, Oman and Germany. In 2015 he records the CD “Infancia” in order to bring the music of the great world composers closer to the children.
