We are thrilled to welcome Frank Wallace – composer, guitarist, lutenist, baritone – at Barns of Rose Hill. Hailed as “one of our age’s truly important composers”, Frank Wallace is a rare artist whose wizardry on the guitar rivals the range and depth of his musical ideas in composition.
Frank Wallace will perform Three Spanish Guitars – a vibrant and sensual experience of rare guitars in the hands of a master – with music of Sor, Aguado, Tárrega, de Falla, Turina, Mompou, and Wallace.
Three exquisite historical guitars from Wallace’s personal collection are featured in music appropriate for each: Sor, Aguado, Tárrega, de Falla, Turina, and Mompou. Wallace has played these instruments by Manuel Gutierrez, Sevilla, 1854; Manuel Ramirez, Madrid, c. 1910; and Ignacio Fleta, Barcelona, 1964 for over 20 years on his most popular recordings on the Gyre label.
“The breadth of his musical activity recalls an earlier age, when a complete musician engaged in a broad range of creative activities…Wallace’s music is exciting, unpredictable, and fresh…”
– Steven Rings, American Record Guide
One of the most prolific guitarist/composers of our time, Frank Wallace’s works have been called “contemporary musical emancipation” by NewMusicBox.org. As a performer, Wallace is known for his “elegant virtuosity” (Classics Today) and tours internationally as a soloist, and with mezzo-soprano Nancy Knowles, as Duo LiveOak. Wallace is a two-time winner of the NH Individual Fellowship Award, has a BM from San Francisco Conservatory, and has served on the faculty of many institutions including the New England Conservatory, Keene State College, and Guitar Foundation of America.
