The classical guitar repertoire is unique to the literature of the piano, violin and other traditionally classical instruments in that it is unprecedentedly influenced by American jazz and popular styles. Guitarist Francesco Barone will present a recital of pieces that draw influence from the rich musical tradition of America. The program will feature the music of Andrew York (American guitarist and composer whose compositions are inspired by American music styles), Nikita Koshkin (Russian composer who draws influence from American jazz) and Alexandre Tansman (a Polish composer who incorporated jazz harmonies into his works).
“Francesco Barone is emerging as one of the new breed of classical guitarist. His concerts bring a strong sense of communication, artistry, and musical depth to the audience. His commentary concerning the music being performed enhances the audiences appreciation and understanding of the performance.”
–Richard Provost, Professor of Guitar at the Hartt School
