This recital offers a kaleidoscopic array of styles unified by South America’s national instrument, the guitar. Titans of Latin American music such as Piazzolla and Barrios Mangoré are represented, but so too are distinctive composers less well known outside of their own countries. Genres such as milonga, Venezuelan waltz, and choro are featured, in music suffused with melancholy and vivacious, biting rhythms. Widely considered one of the best guitarists of his generation, Graham Anthony Devine is currently in much demand as a recitalist and concerto soloist.
