Adam Levin: 21st Century Spanish Guitar
Virtuoso classical guitarist Adam Levin performs newly commissioned works from the decade-long project called “21st Century Spanish Guitar” at Montgomery College.
Adam Levin’s 21st Century Spanish Guitar project is a result of three years of research in Spain as a Fulbright Scholar, Program for Cultural Cooperation grant recipient, and Kate Neal Kinley Fellow. Levin embarked on a project to commission thirty of today’s most respected living composers. This recital program will highlight significant works from this catalogue, including works by Leonardo Balada, Cristobal Halffter, Antón Garciá Abril, Eduardo Morales-Caso and Salvador Brotons. Maestro Balada will give an insightful pre-concert talk about the influence of Spanish folklore on his music and how he has cultivated a personal and convincing voice in the composition world. Two of his works, based on El Amor Brujo and Concierto de Aranjuez, will be performed during the event.
- Pre-concert discussion at 5:30 pm.
- Adam Levin performance at 6 pm.
- Reception at 7 pm.
