Peter Fletcher, Classical Guitarist


Event Details


Peter Fletcher is an American classical guitarist based in Detroit and New York City. He performs over 100 concerts a year, and his recordings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recordings labels have been critically acclaimed.

His recital program will begin with two Renaissance works by Santiago de Murcia and Alonso Mudarra, and features Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Lute Suite No. 1by J. S. Bach, Paganini’s ever popular Caprice No. 24, the fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton, and Recuerdos de la Alhambra, a great favorite among audiences, by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega. In addition, Peter will perform a very special solo version of Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Major, and two of his original transcriptions from his critically acclaimed Fedrico Mompou album, released on Centaur Records, CRC 2588 in 2002.

The concert will culminate with Isaac Albeniz’s Rumores de la Caleta, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.
