Villa Aurora

Villa Aurora’s 20th anniversary Salon Series concert by Jacaranda Music


This daring but pleasurable bonus program includes two masterworks by Per Nørgård, the dean of Danish music, as well as several important guitar milestones from Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and South America. Also prominent will be Akyak-ayakan, a new guitar solo influenced by Indonesian music and American rock, by the emerging LA-based composer Anderson Alden, as well as Klaus Huber’s ingenious Transpositio ad Infinitum. Some musical postscripts to composers featured on the season finale concert include guitar works by Henze, Berio and Ginastera — the latter is also a tribute to the centenary of this most important Argentine composer.
