Rockport Music presents: Jason Vieaux, classical guitar
May 10, 2013
Whether it’s interpreting a Bach suite, transcription of a Piazzolla tango, or jazz standard by Pat Metheny, Vieaux’s virtuosic playing has been described as “spun magic,” creating cinematic vistas with a single instrument. Gramophone hails Vieaux is “…among the elite of today’s classical guitarists.”
One of the “youngest stars of the guitar world” (New York Times, 2010), Jason Vieaux has collaborated with the Escher Quartet, flutist Gary Schocker, harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, and bandoneon/accordion virtuoso Julien Labro. Continually touring and recording, Vieaux is known for his communicative gifts as a guitar virtuoso, making his debut performance at the Shalin Liu Performance Center.
