Music from the Golden Age of Guitar
Classical Guitarist Michael Partington's 2/11/22 Program

Sonata in F major, Op. 29, No. 3 by Anton Diabelli (1781-1858)
Élégiaque, Op. 59 by Fernando Sor (1778-1839)
From Bardenklänge, Op 13 by Josef Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856)

Michael Partington is one of the most engaging concert players of his generation. Praised by Classical Guitar Magazine for his “lyricism, intensity and clear technical command,” this award-winning British guitarist has performed to unanimous critical praise. Audiences are put at ease by his charming stage manner and captivated by his interpretations. An innate rhythmic understanding and sense for tonal colour combine to form some of the most memorable phrasing to be heard on the guitar.
