Award-winning Classical Guitarist: Peter Fletcher

Event Description: 

Award-winning New York based Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher performs a diverse program of music from four centuries.

This concert will be part of Peter Fletcher’s national tour.  Audience-friendly repertoire will include Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring from Cantata No. 147 as well as the Chaconne in D minor by J. S. Bach;  two works from Maurice Ravel’s exquisite Mother Goose Suite; Francisco Tarrega’s ever popular Recuerdos de la Alhambra; two exciting crowd pleasers by Spanish composer Joaquin Turina;  Grieg’s Chanson de Solveig from Peer Gynt; and music of Praetorius, Ponce and Reusner.

The program will culminate with Koyunbaba, by composer/guitarist Carlo Domeniconi. This is one of the most unique and exciting works in the classical guitar repertoire.

Steven Rings of The American Record Guide wrote: “He has a strong technique, a consistent tone, and a strong interpretive imagination.” Peter Burwasser of Fanfare Magazine proclaimed: “Fletcher plays it all with a gracious virtuosity that makes for a very pleasing hour plus of unaffected musical poetry.” His CDs will be available for purchase at the program. The library has two of his CDs; you may ask for them. Please sign up by May 22.
