Join veteran classical guitarist Dave McLellan in this presentation of the complete five preludes for solo guitar by the Brazilian master Heitor Villa-Lobos. These preludes are iconic in the guitar repertoire, and especially when played out of the publication order offer a complete musical journey. If you don't know the subtitles of the five preludes, don't miss this event.

Appetizers are two works by the 16th century vihuelist Luiz Narvaez, and the dessert is a surprise. A middle course of Albeniz may be on the house!

Hello Everyone. This just in! I will do a special livestream on Friday 4/15 at 5 PM dedicated to the five Preludes of Villa-Lobos. It's not a concert, it's a discussion of the preludes, their background, characters, with numerous musical examples. The Saturday program is too long to spend too much time talking about this fascinating body of music. The session on Friday will help you enjoy the concert all the more! Tune in here on Friday at 5 PM Eastern:
