This special classical guitar program features award-winning performer Peter Zisa and celebrates the music of two notable Jewish composers: Alexandre Tansman and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Both composers were favorite composers of the legendary classical guitar performer Andrés Segovia who commissioned them to compose extensively for guitar. Together their compositions represent some of the finest works composed for guitar in the 20th century.
Joining Peter on the program will be flutist, LeeAnn McKenna. LeeAnn is a world-traveled musician and performs in consort with the Oregon Chamber Players and the performance group Thousand Waves.
About Peter Zisa: Peter Zisa has been described as “a masterful performer with remarkable virtuosic and artistic skills...[who] delicately blends melodic line and texture into an exciting musical experience” (Louis Sahagun, Los Angeles Times). Peter is most grateful for the mentorship of David Grimes (internationally acclaimed guitar scholar and Emeritus President of the Guitar Foundation of America) in classical guitar. Peter’s classical training includes his studies with such legendary performers as Maestro Andrés Segovia, José Rey de la Torre, José Tomas, Pepé and Angel Romero, Michael Lorimer, and Oscar Ghiglia. He has performed at universities and various concert series across the U.S. and abroad.
