Watauga County Public Library and the Watauga Friends of the Library Present World-Renowned Guitarist Peter Fletcher

Published Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 11:53 am

Continuing what has become an annual tradition, Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher will present a solo recital of his virtuosic interpretation of compositions by the masters, classical and modern.

 

Fletcher’s published recordings include his performances of works by Edvard Grieg, Erik Satie, Federico Mompou, as well as several compilations of Baroque, Renaissance, and Spanish music for guitar. He often prepares his own transcriptions of noted compositions.

 

Peter Fletcher began guitar study at the age of seven under classical guitar instructor John Sutherland. In 1980 classical guitarist Jose Tomas, Andres Segovia’s teaching assistant in Spain, held a week long master class in Atlanta, GA. Peter Fletcher was the youngest student to perform in the class, playing music by Bach and Carcassi. In over thirty years of performance since that time, Fletcher has appeared on national radio, television, and in numerous prestigious venues, including New York’s Carnegie Hall.

 

He returns to the Library’s Evelyn Johnson Meeting Room to perform a concert featuring works of John Dowland, J.S. Bach, Segovia, Albéniz, Satie, and the Shaker melody “Simple Gifts,” among other selections.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. No tickets required, nor reservations taken. Please call the Reference Desk of Watauga County Public Library at (828) 264-8784, Extension 2, for more information.
