I'm a classical guitarist and technology enthusiast from the Washington, DC area. Since the age of 7, I've been performing solo, chamber, and guitar orchestral works throughout the Washington, DC area at venues including the Kennedy Center, the Netherlands Embassy, Italian Embassy, and the White House. I've also appeared on live-air radio and national commercials for CNBC and Bloomberg.
Written by the Paraguayan composer Agustín Barrios Mangoré (1885-1944), Una Limosnita por Amor de Dios ("An Alm for the Love of God") was one of his most influential and religious works.
Written by the Mexican composer Manuel Ponce (1882-1948), Sonatina Meridional was the final solo work Ponce wrote for Segovia, featuring an eclectic mix of the folkloric, neoclassical, and impressionists styles. This first movement, "Campo," translates to "country" and is evocative of the Andalusian flamenco style.
As one of the most poopular pedagogical Etudes written for the instrument, Heitor Villa-Lobos' (1887–1959) Twelve Études for Guitar features a mix of styles and musical ideas.
