From Tarrega To Django: The Art Of Guitar

Django Reinhardt was not only perhaps the greatest master of Jazz guitar who ever lived, he was also an accomplished composer and classical musician. Classical guitar is totally embedded in his playing. Together Stephane and Michael will present a repertoire including classical guitar pieces by Tarrega, Sor, Albeniz, Sanlucar as well as a collection of Reinhardt’s compositions from Django L’mpressioniste. The concert will end with the traditional Django Gypsy Swing and French Musette repertoire. Be prepared for a journey through the true soul of the guitar!
