Carrera proved to be a master of the instrument, playing Vivaldi’s Concerto for Guitar in D Major. While both of the faster movements, the first and third, were played with finesse and transparency, the slow moving Largo was especially striking.
Carrera displayed sensitivity as well as passion in this section and had the listener almost to himself as the orchestra strings provided shimmering chords as background.
