The program will include Latin music by composers such as Agustin Barrios from Paraguay, who composed a beautiful solo guitar piece that is flowing and lyrical, as well as some bossa-nova and Brazilian rhythms for guitar and bass.
Also included in the program is a quintet for a guitar and string quartet by Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco. His music inspired John Williams and many other Hollywood composers so much that a recent movie entitled “The Maestro” was written about his life.
Also featured will be two pieces by living Russian composer Efrem Podgaits: a guitar concerto for guitar and orchestra, and a duo for violin and guitar written especially for Levon Ambartsumian and Bolshoy.
Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults and $3 for students. Streaming will be available for this concert online atmusic.uga.edu/live-streaming. For all up-to-date concert information, please visit ugamusiccalendar.com.
