Eduardo Fernández & David Leisner—Reich: Nagoya Guitars
Nov 3, 2018
David Leisner and Eduardo Fernández play Steve Reich: Nagoya Guitars.
Compositions by both performers are featured on this inventive and wide-ranging program, which also includes several of Villa-Lobos’ groundbreaking Études for Guitar — pieces which set the technical standard for 20th century guitar performance. Fernández and Leisner perform Nagoya Guitars, a complex piece based on constantly-shifting musical patterns by minimalist master Steve Reich; Eduardo Fernández presents his own transcription of Bach’s immortal Chaconne from the D Minor violin sonata; and join together in two selections by two guitarist-composers of an earlier age: Antoine de Lhoyer and Fernando Sor.
