The Program

As an encore, Mr. Galbraith performed Federico Moreno Torroba’s Arada.

Classical guitar virtuoso Paul Galbraith has been praised by the New Yorker for his “exceptional artistry,” and his recording of the complete Bach violin sonatas and partitas was “a landmark in the history of the guitar” (Gramophone). Performing on the eight-string Brahms guitar that he helped develop, Galbraith infuses flair and passion into your Sunday morning.

“Magnificently played, thoughtful and majestic performances…a landmark in the history of guitar.” Gramophone

This program is approximately one hour long and will be performed without intermission.
