Event description

Description

International guitar virtuoso Aaron Larget-Caplan returns with a second ground-breaking recording for Stone Records. The first classical guitar recording dedicated to the music of John Cage, it features seven early and mid-career compositions, dating from 1933 through 1950 for solo guitar, violin and guitar, and prepared guitar duo. The music is playful, meditative, meandering, introspective, large, quiet, rambunctious, haunting, and regal. Lyricism of Satie and foreshadowing of minimalism and even rock are present on the album. Aaron is joined by violinist Sharan Leventhal (Kepler String Quartet) and guitarist Adam Levin. The album's official release is Nov. 2, 2018.

The Saturday December 1st concert will take place in the Chapel of Arlington Street Church (Boylston St. entrance) and begin at 7:30pm.

The Program features compositions from Aaron's CD 'John. Cage. Guitar.'
Three Easy Pieces
A Room
Chess Pieces
Dream
In a Landscape
Six Melodies - violin & guitar
Bacchanale - prepared guitar duo
