GUITARIST JORGE CABALLERO'S DEBUT RECITAL

Called “A masterly classical guitarist” by the New York Times, Jorge Caballero is the youngest musician and the only guitarist to win the Naumburg International Competition Award.  In his 92Y debut recital, Caballero presents a program of music spanning the eras from Bach to Rimsky-Korsakov to Albéniz and a world premiere of a work he composed himself, written as a love song for his wife, and which encrypts the letters of her name in musical pitches.

*Pre-concert talk at 7 pm with Benjamin Verdery,  Art of the Guitar artistic director and Chair of the Guitar Department at the Yale School of Music.

Clearly among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public” (Gramophone), pianist Alessio Bax embarks on a six-stop U.S. tour with Berlin Philharmonic principal flutist Emmanuel Pahud in New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Ann Arbor, MI and Hartford, CT.  At New York’s 92nd Street Y, Bax and Pahud explore works originally written for other instruments, including Pahud’s own arrangements of Mendelssohn’s Violin Sonata in F Major and Schubert’s Sonata in A minor, D. 821, “Arpeggione”.

Pahud’s virtues: musical grace, technical assurance and, most striking of all, a tone at once plangent and warm.” (The Washington Post)
