In this one-night event, international guitar virtuoso Aaron Larget-Caplan, whom the Washington Post called “a riveting artist whose musical styling begs immediate attention”, will explore the exotic serenades and dances of the Iberian peninsula with Spanish and flamenco masterpieces by Isaac Albéniz, Esteban Sanlucar and Pascual Marquina; the inevitability of life found in the push and pull of the ocean tide by United States composer Kevin Siegfried; re-imaginations of American popular songs and lullabies from the Japan by Toru Takemitsu (collaborator with Akira Kurosawa) and a rarely heard masterwork by Keigo Fujii.
An avid solo and chamber music performer, Aaron’s performances combine the traditional expressivity with contemporary passion. A gifted speaker and teacher, Aaron has an ability to connect with audience allowing both the traditional and new repertoire come to life.
