Jason Vieaux returns to Rochester for 'An Evening in Granada' / City Newspaper

Bookmark and Share

Classical guitarist Jason Vieaux's career reflects the versatility (and the portability) of his instrument. He's apt to show up anywhere, from a symphony orchestra concert to NPR's "Tiny Desk" concert series, from teaching at the venerated Curtis Institute of Music to giving online lessons. The award-winning Vieaux performs throughout the world, but Rochester played an important part in his early studies. He returns to give a solo recital, "An Evening in Granada," at the Hochstein Performance Hall on March 21.

The March 21 concert at Hochstein, "An Evening in Granada," is an all-Spanish program, though it will show the breadth of Jason Vieaux's repertoire. He describes the program as "moving through history, though not chronologically," from Manuel de Falla's "Homage to Debussy" to a 1526 fantasia by Alonso Mudarra. Additional Spanish atmosphere will be provided by projections and other multimedia aids.      PHOTO BY TYLER BOYE
