Peter Fletcher, an American classical guitarist based in Detroit and New York City, will perform an audience-friendly, solo recital including repertoire that runs the gamut from the Baroque period through the 20th century.
His current recital program features the Bach “Chaconne,” “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” Tárrega’s “Recuerdos de la Alhambra” and two works by the Polish composer Alexander Tansman and works by Santiago de Murcia and Domenico Scarlatti.
In addition, Peter will perform three piano pieces by Edvard Grieg where he himself wrote the transcriptions. They are part of an all-Grieg album which was released on Centaur Records in 2014.
The concert will culminate with Isaac Albeniz’s Rumores de la Caleta, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.
His interests outside of music include gardening, running, bike riding and fountain pens. An avid reader, he prefers the works of Cervantes, Proust, Faulkner and Balzac.
The Weaver Hotel will serve coffee and cobbler during intermission.
