I’ll be will previewing my upcoming Seattle Guitar Society performance in a special Portland performance at Casa Della Zisa located at 4624 NE Fremont Street in Portland, Oregon on Saturday September 23 at 7:30 pm.
The program features J.S. Bach’s Prelude and Fuge, BWV 539a, originally for organ, my own arrangement of Lou Harrison’s Waltz for Evelyn Heinrichen, originally for piano, and movements from Sylvius Leopold Weiss’ Sonata No 34. I’m also bringing back repertoire from my past; a suite of works from the ballet music of Spanish composer Manuel de Falla and Sir William Walton’s landmark work The Five Bagatelles for Guitar.
This program hits on all my favorite eras and styles for the classical guitar. I’ve been trying to get Walton’s Five Bagatelles, one of my first loves, back on my program for over a decade. And I’ve always loved playing the de Falla – these charming works are really casting their spell on me in my practice room.
Make your reservations now, seating is limited.
