Rockport Music presents: Benjamin Verdery
March 17, 2013
Described as "iconoclastic" and "inventive" by The New York Times and "one of the classical guitar world’s most foremost personalities," by Classical Guitar Magazine, Benjamin Verdery enjoys an innovative and eclectic musical career. Benjamin Verdery is an internationally performing, prolific classical guitar composer with over fifteen albums since 1980. Chair of the guitar department at Yale University, he still tours internationally as well as records.
Benjamin Verdery, curator of New York’s 92nd St Y’s guitar series, is a master of the serious art music of Bach, Janacek, and Strauss, but also blurs boundaries with his own solo acoustic interpretations of Jimi Hendrix.
