Brad Richter, classical guitar, April 8, 2017, at 7:30 pm- Free Concert
Brad Richter’s ability to defy the technical limits of his instrument has earned him comparisons to the likes of Franz Liszt and Nicolo Paganini by luminaries of the American classical music scene. Equal parts performer, composer, and educator, he has amassed nearly 1,000 concert appearances in North America and Europe – more than 50 of which have been broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today. Brad’s compositions for solo guitar and guitar in an ensemble are performed by guitarists the world over. Accolades include winning the International Composer’s Guild Competition and writing the score for an episode of the PBS series The Desert Speaks. Some commissions of note are: Navigating Lake Bonneville, a concert length chamber piece commissioned by Weber State University, Duo Concerto for Cello and Guitar, co-written with Viktor Uzur for the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Fragments Transcending commissioned by David Finckel, Devil in the Details commissioned by the National Music Teachers Association and Once We Moved like the Wind” a piece for guitar orchestra commissioned by the Tucson Guitar Society.
