Sunday, August 17, 2018, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Yuri Liberzon
Legendary guitarist Marc Teicholz will perform again great new transcriptions that add to the repertoire of the classical guitar. One of Marc's newest projects is a transcription from piano to guitar by Juaquin Turina, amongst the gems that always surprises us from his close circuit of collogues such as Sergio Assad. Marc has been called "The best of the young generation of guitarists…" by Gramophone Magazine, an unprecedented honor.
Eric begins a national tour at the Tower Chapel with a program that includes: The Chaconne in d by Bach, "Delirio" by Julian Arcas, who was the mid-nineteenth century virtuoso that was the first to concertize with Torres guitars, and inspire and teach the great Francisco Tarrega as a teacher. Also works by 20th century Mexican pop bolero composers, and classic flamenco will highlight the second half. And as always, new compositions!
Yuri Liberzon has received amazing critical acclaim in the past year for his new album
"Acentuado"..."Yuri's understated virtuosity is elegant and despite the way it serves the music, it is noticeably impressive..." -Six String Guitar Magazine
Again, this year's program will unfold yet another new chapter in Yuri's ever expanding repertoire with new his new transcription for the "Sonata in C" for violin by Bach, and cutting edge new works for guitar from international contemporary artists.
