Classical guitarist Peter Fletcher returns Oct. 23
Classical guitarist Peter Fletcher is on a nationwide tour promoting an upcoming CD that will feature such works as “Paganini’s Caprice No. 24,” and the ever-popular “Cordoba” by the Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz.
Fletcher performs Sunday, Oct. 23 at The History Museum of Hood River County. Fletcher’s playing style reflects luminary guitarists like Andres Segovia and Christopher Parkening — and critics say he plays with “unparalleled technique and nuance.” Other repertoire on the program includes Bach’s “Lute Suite No. 3,” and the fiendishly difficult “Five Bagatelles for Guitar” by British composer William Walton, Fletcher’s transcriptions of the French composer Erik Satie, and works by Dowland, Llobet and Segovia. The all-acoustic show will be in the atrium of The History Museum of Hood River County. Some balcony seating and front row premium seating are available. Tickets can be purchased at brownpapertickets.com.
