Cathedral of Trees presents a new spring program of 10-string classical guitar, including Debussy, Gismonti, Sakura Variations by Yocoh, and the Cuban love-ballad El Decameron Negro by Brouwer.
Cathedral of Trees, a.k.a. classical guitarist Matthew Anderson, works to rekindle the fusion of classical and world music begun by Egberto Gismonti and other new world composers since the 1960's. Profoundly inspired by the Amazonian people and rainforest, Gismonti used a mix of modern and primitive musical elements to convey a sense of the beauty and complexity of the natural world. Drawing from Gismonti's repertoire as well as from other composers who blur the boundaries between musical styles, Cathedral of Trees explores the natural rhythms and hypnotic sounds of Brazil and beyond through the sounds of the guitar.
Ample street parking is available. Metro #5 or #44. Our house is high off the street and it's thirty steps to the front door. Attendees will be asked to make a donation (minimum $10) all of which goes to the musicians. Please bring any drinks and snacks you'd like to share.
Note: Please do not arrive early unless you have a special need and have communicated with me. Both hosts and musicians require preparation and set up time. The start time (7:30) means that is the time you should arrive, and you can expect the program will start slightly later. Thanks for your consideration.
