When: Sunday, September 24, 2017 - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Where: Porter Meeting Room (large)

From the royal courts of Europe, to streets of small villages, to concert stages around the world, the guitar expresses a profound musical language. Kevin Sherwin?s The Guitar's Story explores music from traditions of both folk and art music, ranging from kingly dances and operatic serenades to native folk traditions of South America and Spain. The program starts at the crossroads between folk and art music from the guitar?s beginnings in the 17th century, with works by Logy and Sanz, who were renowned court composers of Prague and Spain. The concert then spotlights works of famous guitarist-composers who drew inspiration from the salon and streets, including Francisco Tarrega, Heitor Villa-Lobos, and Fernando Sor, featuring Sor?s famous ?Variations on a theme from Mozart?s The Magic Flute.? The program concludes with compositions dedicated to great guitarists of the 20th century, such as Andres Segovia and Julian Bream?and how these composers drew from the instrument?s rich cultural history to create new compositions.
