Described by the Washington Post as “a riveting artist” classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan returns to the LCCC for a one-day only matinee performance on Sunday, February 15 at 3 pm.
A wide-ranging solo program titled “Bach to the 21st Century” includes Aaron’s arrangements of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Domenico Scarlatti and Franz Schubert, original works by Latin American, Spanish and Japanese composer, and new lullabies written for Aaron’s New Lullaby Project including a world premiere by Bay-Area composer Garrett Shatzer.
An avid solo and chamber music performer, Aaron’s performances combine the traditional expressivity with contemporary passion. A gifted speaker and performer, Aaron has a unique ability to connect with audiences allowing both the traditional and new repertoire to come to life.
Of his new solo program “Bach to the 21st Century Aaron says, “the seed of the program came from a love affair I have had with a few of these compositions. Since I was a student at the New England Conservatory I have been challenged and enamored by the music of Bach and Scarlatti. Of course they are technically difficult, but finding one’s own voice with such masterpieces is the true challenge. The contemporary composition to balance the emotional strength of Bach and Scarlatti come from the Legend of Hagoromo by Keigo Fujii, which I first heard in Spain in 1998. From that moment my heart was taken by this most expressive and phenomenal masterpiece.”
