PETER FLETCHER ~ CLASSICAL GUITAR
Date: February 22, 2017 - March 11, 2017
Event Description Fletcher will perform selections from his new CD, which contains such classical masterworks such as Paganini’s dazzling Caprice No. 24, and the ever popular Cordoba by the Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz. Other repertoire on the program includes Bach’s monumental Lute Suite No. 3, the exciting and fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles for Guitar by British composer William Walton, Fletcher’s transcriptions of the French composer Erik Satie, and works by Dowland, Llobet and Segovia. In addition Peter will perform a very special arrangement of the Shaker hymn Simple Gifts, which has become a favorite among audiences. On May 6, 2017, Peter will perform this exact program at Weill Recital Hall Carnegie Hall in New York City. There will be a brief intermission for audience convenience and Peter will remain after the program to meet with his fans.
