Contemporary Classical

Roc Guitar Fest: Raphael Feuillatre

When: Mon., April 3, 7 p.m.

Guitar class from ROCmusic (directed by Michael Jones) will kick off Raphaël‘s concert at 7pm.

Not a speck of museum dust rises when Raphaël Feuillâtre performs music from the distant past. The 26-year-old French classical guitarist, whose repertoire embraces everything from Johann Sebastian Bach and Rameau to contemporary compositions by Roland Dyens and Sérgio Assad, possesses the technical mastery and creative vision required to make works from all periods sound as if they were written yesterday – alive, heartfelt, filled with colour. Hailed by Guitar Salon International as “one of the most exciting classical guitarists of his generation”, he makes his instrument sing with a rare blend of clarity and grace.
