Pacific Guitar Ensemble
February 1, 2013; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Programmed by Sarah Cahill
This “eclectic group of pluckers”—eight virtuosos of classical guitar, including ensemble founders David Tanenbaum and Peppino D’Agostino—supplements nylon strings with steel, combines electric basses with seventeenth-century theorbos, and throws in an oud for good measure. Tonight they join forces to tackle a wide variety of music, including Steve Reich’s seminal Electric Counterpoint, as well as works by Sérgio Assad, Terry Riley, and Astor Piazzolla.
Please come early for best seating. A limited number of chairs will be available.
Admission to L@TE is $7; free for BAM/PFA members and Cal students, faculty, and staff. Advance tickets are available online, in person at the BAM/PFA admissions desk, and by phone.
L@TE is made possible by Ann Hatch/Tin Man Fund, the Thomas J. Long Foundation, and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees. Special thanks to our media sponsors East Bay Express and San Francisco Bay Guardian.
