Guitar Plus: David Leisner + cellist Zuill Bailey
Thursday, March 28, 2013
In a first-ever collaboration between these two stellar musicians, Guitar Plus presents a program featuring Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata, Matiega's Fantasia, Op. 30, and de Falla's Popular Spanish Songs, all for guitar and cello, as well as the world premiere of Twilight Dreams by David Leisner.
"Make no mistake, David Leisner is a conspicuously gifted guitarist...startling poise and lucid grace, and neatly defined balance of rawness and sophistication. . . " -The Los Angeles Times
"The sound is rich, like dark chocolate...his voice is distinctive--strong and direct. Bailey reaches from the soul of his instrument to our own." -Jason Victor Serinus, Voices
