The Faulkner County Library announces the return of Peter Fletcher, renowned classical guitarist, at 7 p.m. Saturday. The event is free and open to the public.
The concert will feature selections from Fletcher’s 2008 CD release on Tower Hill Records: Music of the Baroque. Other repertoire includes "Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring" from Cantata No. 147 and the "Chaconne in D minor" by J. S. Bach; Usher-Waltz, an unusual and intense piece by Russian guitarist and composer Nikita Koshkin; 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.
Wrote Steven Rings of The American Record Guide: "He has a strong technique, a consistent tone, and a strong interpretive imagination."
Fletcher has earned a widespread reputation as a guitarist of skill, passion and art, with acclaimed performances at Carnegie Hall and venues across America.
