Music on Saturdays

As the culmination of the spring Music on Saturdays concert series, we welcome classical guitarist Francesco Barone on Saturday, June 17 at 3pm. Barone will present a recital of classical guitar music from the traditional and 20th century repertoires. The first half of the program features music of the baroque and classical periods, including Mauro Guliani’s Grande Sonata Erocia as well as Lute Suite no. 1 by Johann Sebastian Bach. The second half will include music written in the 20th century, including Frank Martin’s Quatre Pieces Breves (1933) and The Elves Suite (1984), a piece written by living Russian composer Nikita Koshkin.

Barone is an award-winning guitarist who has performed throughout the United States as a soloist and chamber musician. He was a prize winner in the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society Guitar Competition and has had performances broadcasted on NPR. He received his DMA from the Hartt School, University of Hartford.
