Bach in the Gardens of Alhambra

May 12 @ 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Classical guitarist Adam Levin will present a solo recital titled “Bach in the Gardens of Alhambra” at a Bach Week Festival Candlelight Concert 10 p.m. on May 12 in the lobby of Evanston’s Nichols Concert Hall.

Levin will perform music of J.S. Bach and Spanish composers. Works include Bach’s Lute Suite in E Major, BWV 1006a; Manuel de Falla’s “Homenaje pour Le Tombeau de Claude Debussy”; Salvador Brotons’ “Sonata Sefardita,” Op. 143; and Joaquín Turina’s “Sevillana.”

From 2008-2011, as a Fulbright Scholar and with grants from additional sources, Levin researched contemporary Spanish guitar repertoire in Madrid, Spain. His three-year residency resulted in a major collaboration with 30 Spanish composers spanning four generations, who each wrote works commissioned by and dedicated to Levin. He has released three albums of 21st century Spanish guitar music on the Naxos label. A fourth installment, on Frameworks Records, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Traditional Classical Albums chart.

The guitarist’s live performances have been featured nationally on NPR’s “Performance Today” and the nationally syndicated “Classical Guitar Alive.” He has performed from the studios of major classical radio stations including Chicago’s WFMT and Boston’s WCRB.

Levin is professor of classical guitar at the University of Rhode Island and artistic director of the University of Rhode Island Guitar Festival.

Continuing a Candlelight Concert tradition, Bach Week invites guests to partake of a complimentary glass of champagne and gourmet chocolates during the concert.
