From Bach to Latin America An Evening of Classical Guitar with Mitch Weverka
Greater Boston House Concerts is pleased to present a solo recital with Texas-based guitarist and educator Mitch Weverka.
In his program, From Bach to Latin America, Mr. Weverka presents a program that begins with his own arrangement of the ever-popular first Cello suite by J.S. Bach. The program then switches over to music by living guitarists from Latin America, highlighted by a newly composed suite based on traditional Bolivian music by Oscar Valdez and Ernesto García de León's "Lejanías Sonata", a composition that sets the Rumba rhythms in a neoclassical form using post-modern harmonies.
