Duo Recital – Dmitry Koudymov, Classical Guitarist, with Brian Barany

La Verne Library

The program opens with a journey through the landscape of 19th century Europe with works by Johann Mertz and Mauro Giuliani.  For contrast, the duo transitions to a specially commissioned piece composed by Jon Brenner, which presents Purcell’s Baroque theme through the lens of the 21st century.  From there, the journey continues with folk music from Mexico as conceived by neo-classical composer Manuel Ponce. Rounding out the performance, Celso Machado’s infectious and earthy Brazilian rhythms find great expression through the colors of the nylon strings.
