Event Details

Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher 'Music of Four Centuries' Peter 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. Peter offers an audience friendly, solo recital including repertoire that runs the gamut from the Baroque Period through the 20 th Century.  His 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.  Peter will be on a concert tour during February and March 2020, taking in five states where he will be presented in solo recital at such prestigious venues as at the South Baldwin Community Theater in Gulf Shores, AL and the Live Oak Art Center in Columbus, TX.  Last October and November, Peter toured the West Coast and the Midwest, and was the subject of a feature article in the Times Herald in California.  He was interviewed on City Lights at the classical music station WABE in Atlanta His interests outside of music include house decorating, gardening, running and fountain pens. An avid reader, he prefers the works of Cervantes, Proust, Faulkner and Balzac.  We invite you to visit for more information.
