Twice Grammy-nominated guitarist-composer Jose Lezcano teams up with virtuoso pianist Virginia Eskin to present a duo program of music that showcases the Mediterranean spirit and excitement of works from Spain, Italy and Hispano-America.
Jose’s collaborations with Virginia over the past decade include duo performances for Boston’s St. Botolph Club, Natick Concert Series, the Bass Hall Monadnock Series in Peterborough, N.H., the Keene State College International Guitar Festival, and the Sumner Hall Concert Series in Keene, N.H. Together they have explored the little-known repertoire for guitar & amp; piano, including works by Torroba, Ponce, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and an original work by Lezcano (Fantasia Latina).
They will present a program of works, entitled “Mediterranean Landscapes — Works from Spain, Italy, and Hispano-America,” including works by the aforementioned composers, with sonatas by Scarlatti, guitar
preludes of Villa-Lobos, and Brazilian Tangos by Nazareth.
