Did you know Baltimore is home to a legend of the classical guitar?
That legend is Peabody’s Manuel Barrueco and he’ll play LIVE, Saturday, October 28 at Towson University.
The New York Times called him “a superior musician” and the LA Times said he’s “a major artist with remarkable musicianship and a world of technique.” He’s even played with the “King of Opera” himself, Placido Domingo. “But some of my most rewarding work is with my students at Peabody,” says Barrueco. I’m impressed every day with their talent and dedication.”
Manuel’s 2017 tour has taken him across Europe and the U.S. but his Towson show is a special one, entitled: “The Spanish Guitar.” Manuel will play a piece by Spanish composers Fernando Sor, Granados, and Falla. “It’s music that is close to me. I’ve been playing this music since I was kid,” says the Cuban-born Barrueco. “It brings out the best of the instrument. The voice of the guitar has a Spanish accent!”
The show also marks the 30th Anniversary of the Baltimore Classical Guitar Society, which has made Baltimore a stop for some of the world’s classical guitar greats.
In fact, Classical Guitar Magazine calls Baltimore a “special place” for the art form and the acclaimed Assad Guitar Duo calls Charm City “the Mecca of classical guitar.”
Manuel Barrueco’s October 28 show at Towson is a great opportunity to see a classical guitar legend and introduce yourself to Baltimore’s ever-growing classical guitar scene.
