Music at Meyer: David Burgess, guitar
Recently returned from a seven city European concert tour, New York guitarist David Burgess will perform some of Brazil's finest solo guitar music on Monday, March 18 at 7:30 P.M. in the Martin Meyer Sanctuary at Temple Emanu-el.
Praised by critics for his polished technique and flamboyant style, David Burgess has performed throughout North and South America, Europe and the Far East, as well as having recorded for CBS Masterworks, Musical Heritage Society, Tritone and Athena Records. Formerly a student of Andres Segovia, he has won prizes in international guitar competitions in New York, Mexico City, Toronto and Munich. Over the past 10 years, Mr. Burgess has taken numerous trips to Brazil, rediscovering guitar music from Brazil’s past, as well as finding many progressive contemporary Brazilian works.
The program will include music by some of the finest Brazilian guitarists of all time: Garoto (1915-1955), who performed throughout the world with Carmen Miranda, and became a favorite performer of Duke Ellington and Art Tatem; Raphael Rabello (1962-1995), who recorded with virtually every major Brazilian artist of that time; Yamandu Costa (b.1980), recognized as today’s finest Brazilian guitarist; and of course Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994), the best known composer of Bossa Nova.
