AN EVENING WITH ELIOT FISK
Presented by Close Encounters With Music at Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
March 23, 2013
Back by popular demand, guitarist extraordinaire Eliot Fisk demonstrates again that the versatility and appeal of his instrument are almost limitless. He is joined by Metropolitan Opera star soprano Jennifer Zetlan and Yehuda Hanani in the world premiere of a newly-commissioned work by American composer Robert Beaser. The wide-ranging program features multiple traditions: German lieder, moody fado, J. S. Bach, tango, transpositions, improvisations, and more. The last student of legendary Spanish guitarist Andrés Segovia, Eliot Fisk was awarded the Cruz of Isabel la Catolica for his service to the cause of Spanish music, performing to dazzling critical and public acclaim, including a command performance for King Juan Carlos of Spain.
