Peter Fletcher’s current recital program features two Bach lute suites, No. 1 in e minor and No. 3 in a minor. He will perform the fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton, and Recuerdos de la Alhambra, a great favorite among audiences, by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega, music by the Polish composer Alexander Tansman and the romantic Four Preludes by Mexican composer Manuel Ponce. The concert will culminate with Isaac Albeniz’s Rumores de la Caleta, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.
Fletcher is an American classical guitarist based in Detroit and New York City. He performs over 80 concerts a year, and his recordings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recordings labels have been critically acclaimed. He has even performed several times at Carnegie Hall.
