The Yale School of Music presents the renowned classical guitarist David Tanenbaum in the culminating concert of the Eight Yale Guitar Extravaganza on Saturday, February 22.
Tanenbaum is an important proponent of new guitar repertoire, and his concert at Yale will focus on contemporary pieces. The program includes Ronald Bruce Smith’s Five Pieces for Guitar and Live Electronics, Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint, and Mario Davidosky’s Synchronisms No. 10.
The concert will conclude with 100 Greatest Dance Hits for guitar and string quartet by YSM faculty composer Aaron Jay Kernis. Tanenbaum will be joined by four student string players from the Yale School of Music: Nathan Lesser and Jessica Oddie, violins; Lucy Caplan, viola; and Elisa Rodríguez Sadaba, cello.
