Renowned guitarist performs

A renowned guitarist, who heads up the guitar division at the University of B.C. School of Music and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music will perform a number of original works during a special concert this weekend at the Langley Community Music School.

Daniel Bolshoy, who performs internationally, is offering a solo concert Saturday night at the Rose Gellert Hall starting at 7:30 p.m.

“We are delighted to feature a solo guitarist once again in our concert series,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS. 

“Celebrated virtuoso Daniel Bolshoy will be playing an entire program of original works composed for the guitar. It’s unusual for him to play a concert program without any transcriptions and only original works. This is a concert not to be missed.”

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, $16 for students at 604-534-2848 or at www.langleymusic.com.

Bolshoy will perform selected works from his new CD including works by Paraguayan composer Agustin Pio Barrios, and the Spanish composers Joaquin Rodrigo and Regino Sainz de la Maza.  

“The styles that the programmed pieces cover are quite diverse, from French Impressionism, to highly romantic tributes to Chopin, to South American folk influences, Spanish nationalism, a very recent American composition which pays homage to an old culture (the suite Next Year, which evokes the old city of Jerusalem) to Brazilian Jazz,” Bolshoy said.

“All the music is quite virtuosic and demanding, and I think very appealing to listen to. I hope the audience enjoys it! I certainly enjoy playing it.”

 Bolshoy says he is committed to bringing the guitar to the attention of audiences everywhere.

He is regularly praised for his friendly and informative spoken introductions, and progressive programming of solo and chamber music.

His concert tours take him from prestigious international concert stages to remote villages and house-concerts.

In his role as teacher, Bolshoy’s students have won awards in competitions, and scholarships to leading universities and conservatories, including the top two awards in the Canadian Music Festival competitions.

The Rose Gellert Hall concert season, sponsored by Hub Insurance, is presented at 4899 207th St. in Langley.
