Dear Friends, Colleagues, Students, Opera & Guitar Aficionados,
Please join Internationally renowned soprano Sungji Kim and myself for a recital on Sunday, 12 March, 2:00 PM, at the Mt. Laurel Library. Featured will be Italian arias by the great virtuoso guitarist-composer Mauro Giuliani; German songs by Franz Schubert (including three of his most famous lieder masterpieces: Auf dem Wasser zu singen, Ave Maria, and Gretchen am Spinnrade); Heitor Villa-Lobos’ beloved Bachianas Brasileiras No.5; and solo guitar works by the Romantic Era’s greatest composer-guitarists J.K Mertz, Ivan Padovec and others. “Di tanti palpiti” — based upon Rossini’s famous operatic aria - and set for in grand operatic style for voice and guitar by Giuliani — will highlight the program. We hope to see you there!
