We’re so excited for our Season Opener with Ana Vidovic on September 22nd! Here’s a sneak peak of just a few of the amazing pieces you’ll hear on Saturday.

Ana’s program is delightful. It ranges from Bach to Piazzolla, and has some of the greatest music ever written for guitar. Listen and watch here, and feel free to follow along with notes about a few of the works below.

Recuerdos de la Alhambra, Francisco Tárrega

Flute Partita in A Minor, BWV. 1013: II. Corrente, J.S. Bach

Sonata in A Major, Domenico Scarlatti

La Catedral, Agustín Barrios Mangoré

Verano PorteñoAstor Piazzolla

Feste LarianeLuigi Mozzani

Recuerdos de la Alhambra

More than any other composer, Francisco Tarrega evokes the spirit of Spain. In the iconic Recuerdos de la Alhambra, he pays tribute to the greatest surviving remnant of the Islamic presence in Iberia and the rich shared history of Spain and the Arab world.


Sonata K. 322

Some of the most charming music played on the guitar was originally composed for the keyboard by Domenico Scarlatti. His Sonata K.322, one of the 550 he created, exhibits his simple but masterfully inventive style. Here is the great Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli performing K. 322 with its characteristic Italian tunefulness and early Classical style.


Verano Porteño

Astor Piazzolla is the Argentinian master of Nuevo Tango, and his music blends jazz, classical and traditional tango styles. We can’t wait to hear Ana’s interpretations of his work, and here is Piazzolla himself performing Verano Porteño.


Feste Lariane

This isn’t on the program, but we couldn’t help including a short video of Ana from her childhood. In it, she shares that she’s playing her brother’s guitar – it was double the size of her, but her parents couldn’t afford a smaller one. Necessity, in this case, was the mother of a determined and promising young lady who grew into a brilliant concert artist.


Join us for our spectacular season opener on September 22 with the one and only Ana Vidovic! Tickets and more information available here.
