Classical Concert: Aaron Larget-Caplan
Sunday, April 8, 2018
Renowned classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan will return for his second appearance at the Crocker Art Museum to showcase the powerful connection between music and visual art. The program will include Larget-Caplan’s own arrangement of John Cage’s In A Landscape, which perfectly evokes the stillness of a landscape; and movements from Modest Mussorgsky’s homage to art, Pictures at an Exhibition. A series of Bach’s preludes arranged by Larget-Caplan paired
with Carnatic Preludes inspired by Bach by Indian-American composer Vineet
Shende, and a tour-de-force performance of the
picturesque and evocative modern masterpiece Legend of Hagoromo by
KeigoFujii will round out this special concert.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of works in the Crocker's permanent collection from the three centuries featured in the concert - 18th, 19th, and 20th, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
