Peter Fletcher, an award-winning classical guitarist will present Music of Four Centuries, offering a solo recital including a repertoire that runs the gamut from the Renaissance Period through the 20th Century.
His current recital program features Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring and Lute Suite No.1 by J. S. Bach, Paganini's popular Caprice No. 24, the difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton, and Recuerdos de la Alhambra, a great favorite among audiences, by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega. In addition, Peter will perform a very special solo version of Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major, and two of his original transcriptions from his critically acclaimed Federico Mompou album, released on Centaur Records in 2002. The concert will culminate with Isaac Albeeniz's Rumores de la Caleta, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.
In demand as a performer in cultural venues throughout the country, Peter Fletcher has been invited to give recitals at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York; Cincinnati's Memorial Hall; The Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta and Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina among others. His solo recital in 2017 at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City was extremely well received as was his recital at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, Michigan in 2018. He performs over 100 concerts a year, and his recordings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recording labels have been critically acclaimed. Peter divides his time between Detroit and New York City.
