Jason Vieaux, guitar
Presented by John E. Marlow Guitar Series
Monday, January 16, 2017 - 9:00pm
Grammy Award-winner Jason Vieaux is "among the elite of today's classical guitarists" (Gramophone). NPR describes Vieaux as "perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation." His most recent solo album, Play, won the 2015 Grammy award for Best Classical Instrumental Solo. In June 2014, NPR named "Zapateado" from the album one of its "50 Favorite Songs of 2014 (So Far)." Vieaux has earned a reputation for putting his expressiveness and virtuosity at the service of a remarkably wide range of music.
Recorded October 22, 2016 at Westmoreland Congregational Church in Bethesda, by audio engineer David Shoemaker.
