About This Performance
This young composer/performer’s instrument is the 11-string archguitar, a hybrid of baroque lutes and modern guitars that captures the color and range of Bach’s lute suites as well as Impressionist and modern works.
About Salon concerts: SF Performances’ Salon concerts are reminiscent of the days when artists performed in intimate spaces for a small group of friends. Artists talk about the music they perform, sharing insights into how programs are developed and how careers are formed. Audiences learn about music in a convivial atmosphere where questions and discussion are encouraged. These informal, after-work events last just one hour, and drinks may be purchased in the hotel bar before each concert.
