Classical Mexican Guitar

When: Sun., Oct. 25, 3-4 p.m. 2015

Dr. R. C. Kohl will discuss the history and perform compositions and arrangements by the Orizaban guitarist Octaviano Yáñez (1865-1927) who, though largely unknown today, was considered Mexico’s finest classical guitarist during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and one of the first guitarists ever recorded. This program of simple, enjoyable melodies set to waltz and habanera rhythms pleasantly portrays the salon music of Mexico’s “belle époque.”
