Langley Community Music School welcomes guitarist Daniel Bolshoy  to the Rose Gellert Hall on Saturday, March 1,  at 7:30 p.m.

Bolshoy will perform selected works from his new CD, including pieces by Paraguayan composer Agustin Pio Barrios, and the Spanish composers Joaquin Rodrigo and Regino Sainz de la Maza.

“We are delighted to feature a solo guitarist once again in our concert series,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS.

“Celebrated virtuoso, Daniel Bolshoy, will be playing an entire program of original works composed for the guitar.

“It’s unusual for him to play a concert program without any transcriptions and only original works. This is a concert not to be missed.”

“The styles that the programmed pieces cover are quite diverse, from French Impressionism, to highly romantic tributes to Chopin, to South American folk influences, Spanish nationalism, a very recent American composition which pays homage to an old culture (the suite Next Year, which evokes the old city of Jerusalem) to Brazilian Jazz,” said Bolshoy.

“All the music is quite virtuosic and demanding, and I think very appealing to listen to. I hope the audience enjoys it. I certainly enjoy playing it.”

Bolshoy is committed to bringing the guitar to the attention of audiences everywhere.

He is regularly praised for his friendly and informative spoken introductions, and progressive programming of solo and chamber music.

His concert tours take him from prestigious international concert stages to remote villages and house-concerts. Mr. Bolshoy is the head of the guitar division at the University of British Columbia School of Music.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students. Call 604-534-2848 or visit www.langleymusic.com to purchase tickets.

The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
