This week on Fretworks, we have one of the great early 19th century guitar concertos, Mauro Giuliani’s Guitar Concerto in A, Op. 30. This work from around 1812 is in Late Classical/Early Romantic style and is a joy to hear.
Saturday at 7pm on Fretworks, we have music ranging from the 16th century to the 1950′s, and a few other stops along the way.
For music of the classical guitar and something for the lute as well, tune in for Fretworks Saturday evening at 7 on Classical 101. We’ll also have something for guitar and orchestra and guitar with string quartet, and there will be a piece with flute, too.
On the next Fretworks Saturday evening at 7 pm we’ll hear some lute music by Columbus native Paul O’Dette as well selections from the Julian Bream Consort and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
Paul O’Dette plays the lute, an instrument that looks like a guitar, but it’s not; and its style, technique, and scores date back to the “early music” era.
