Andrés Segovia and the Guitar Today: DATE CHANGE!
Please note we have moved up the date by one week to: July 20.
João Figueirôa, the young Brazilian virtuoso and Larry Snitzler, who has performed in 20 countries and who knew Andrés Segovia personally for 25 years, will offer a three-hour presentation discussing the importance of the great Spanish master, both in the past, and for today's generation of guitarists. Mr. Snitzler will play solos by Moreno-Torroba, Villa-Lobos and Segovia; the program will conclude with João and Larry performing a duet written by Andrés Segovia.
On August 11, I return to the historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, just down the street from the White House. The beauty of the interior is matched by the superb acoustics. Just the place to listen to a Summer Serenade of pieces by Moreno-Torroba and Villa-Lobos.
Thanks to everyone who came out to see the Eclectic Guitars, LarrySnitzler & Rick Whitehead, and who gave us three standing ovations when we played all those new tangos! We'll be adding more new music by Bach and Scarlatti in the Fall.
