“Happy New Year with Celso Machado and Paolo Bellinati!” We celebrate the new year with music from the renowned Brazilian composers Machado and Bellinati!
"Christmas Joy!"--a fortuitous landing of December 25 on Monday night lets us go all out with our joyful celebration of the Christmas season. But you hear the unexpected here on "Inside Classical Guitar"--everything from the beautiful traditional to "Marley's Ghost" and the Winter movement of the Four Seasons (but not Vivaldi this time, tune in to hear!).
We recently lost Austrian guitarist and lutenist Konrad Ragossnig (6 May 1932 – 1 January 2018). Let's reflect back on his musical legacy.
"Christmas Cheer"--Holiday music, both familiar and less so, played by the Boccherini Guitar Quartet, Los Romeros, and concluding with an incredible solo arrangement of Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" by St. Louis native guitarist Douglas Niedt!
Tune in in hear three legendary concertos--written by Joaquin Rodrigo and Manuel Ponce--performed by legendary guitarists: Spaniards Pepe Romero and Virginia Luque, and Australian John Williams!
This week a double focus: the form is dance, and the performer is the deservedly-popular guitarist Jorge Morel! Starting with his legendary Danza Brasiliera, then his five movement suite entitled Latin Impressions, through Bustament's amazing Missionera, music by Agustin Barrios, and more!
Here we go, hang on to your seats! Inside Classical Guitar plays some prime selections from the immense discography of Los Romeros, in anticipation of their St. Louis performance this Saturday, March 4, 8:00 pm at the 560 Music Center. Listen in now, then join us on Saturday to experience brothers Celin, Pepe, Celin's son Clino, and nephew Lito Romero live in concert!
Let's get in the mood for the upcoming St. Louis return of Los Romeros on March 4 with some music by the middle brother of the three, the legendary Pepe Romero. A show of Spanish favorites, plus some Brahms, Schimann, and Chopin, all sure to please!
