The Embassy of Italy presents a guitar recital by Italian guitarist Carlo Fierens at Sala Sudasiri Sobha on Sunday at 4pm.

In a relaxing ambience of Sunday afternoon, the show will bring a mesmerising repertoire of classical guitar in the unique concert hall where the performer and audience become one through music.

He will render a variety of sounds from profound and lyrical melodies to daring virtuosic music through scores of Spanish, Italian and American elements.

Representing the pride of Italy as a guitarist, Fierens is known for his lyrical sensitivity. His performances have been well praised by music critics both in Italy and abroad.
