Inspired by years of touring and recording internationally classical, world, and contemporary solo and chamber music, Dorchester-based guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan will present “Now Musique – Exploring New & Neglected Music,” on Saturday, April 13 at 7 p.m. in the historic Chapel at Arlington Street Church.
The debut concert, “Poetry, Portraits & Light – Music for Viola and Guitar,” features Larget-Caplan alongside Chicago-based violist Michael Hall. They will perform duos and solos written for them by Francine Trester, of the Berklee College of Music, and Brazilian Antonio Celso Ribeiro.
Hall, who founded the Bandung Philharmonic, the first professional orchestra in Indonesia, will perform a worldly selection of recently written viola solos. Larget-Caplan plays solos by Kevin Siegfried (Boston Conservatory at Berklee), and the lyrical music of John Cage from his latest CD, ‘John. Cage. Guitar.’
The musicians will introduce the music and the composers throughout the concert. A recording artist with the UK label Stone Records since 2015, Larget-Caplan has premiered over 80 solos and chamber works and toured throughout the US, Russia, Europe, and Taiwan. He’s been on faculty of the Boston Conservatory and is currently at the University of Massachusetts Boston. “Now Musique is the culmination of many of my musical passions: music that reflects on our time, collaboration with composers and performers, and community,” said Larget-Caplan. “Come and join us for the new endeavor and take part in its growth.”
