Giovanni De Chiaro

Celebrate the Season with A Festival of Carols

Dec 18, 2015

With Christmas just a week away, the next Fretworks abounds with beautiful music for the classical guitar that evokes the holiday spirit.  Giovanni De Chiaro is back this week with A Festival of Carols from his "Christmas on Guitar" CD.

The guitar family, the Romeros, perform an original work for four guitars and orchestra written for them by the Italian composer, conductor, and virtuoso viola player, Massimo Paris.  The 22 minute X'mas Suite is part of the group's "Christmas with Los Romeros" CD from Deutsche Grammophon. 

The next Fretworks for Labor Day weekend and the second week of September will begin with a rousing rendition of George Gershwin's Three Preludes for Piano arranged for four mandolins and performed by the Modern Mandolin Quartet.
