“A World of Guitar: Virtuoso Guitar Music from Six Continents” features guitar music from around the world performed by Stone Records recording artist Aaron Larget-Caplan, and EWM Records artist Peter Janson, in both solo and duo formats. Composers include Bach, Dowland, Mussorgsky, Lauro, and new works by Vineet Shende, Peter Janson and more.

The concert introduces guitar music from around the world, performed with artistry and technical mastery, stemming from the vastly rich variety of human culture as expressed in its guitar music: songs that cross genres and styles from Americana and Celtic, to classical and flamenco, to world-jazz-fusion for an unforgettable musical adventure. A World of Guitar features music for solo guitar, and duets, that reveal a mutual devotion to the heart, soul, and inspiration of great guitar music from around the world.

Avid solo performers, their shows bring world-class guitar playing to the concert stage: music that not only entertains, but is also evocative and engrossing, with roots in tradition and a sense of history, while addressing and capturing the sounds, rhythms, and urgency of our contemporary world. This music is further brought to life by sharing the origins, humor, stories and legends of each piece.
