Eastport Arts Center’s Concert Series will continue at 7 pm, Friday, August 4 with “Sevilla: A Spanish Guitar Celebration,” featuring classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan. Caplan returns to EAC after several wildly popular past appearances, and is celebrating both his 10th album release and reaching 5 million streams of his music online. The concert will feature a few surprises along with solos from recent recordings: J.S. Bach from God’s Time; Caplan’s own compositions from honey cadence; and classical and flamenco pieces from his most recent release, Spanish Candy.
Classical guitarist and composer Aaron Larget-Caplan has performed in Europe, Russia, Asia, and across the USA. He has premiered more than 110 compositions, and directs the New Lullaby Project and Spanish classical music and flamenco dance ensemble, ¡Con Fuego! His groundbreaking arrangements and recording of the music of John Cage are the first to be sanctioned by the Cage estate.
Caplan’s 10 acclaimed solo albums and multiple publications have been praised from across the world. He has garnered awards from the Société Académique Arts-Sciences-Lettres of Paris, France for his trailblazing work in music; the Music Publishers Association of the US; and was Musician in Residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Canada.
The Washington Post calls him “A riveting artist;” the Boston Musical Intelligencer applauds his “Astounding technical proficiency and technical delicacy.”
