On June 3 at the Circular Congregational Church accomplished classical guitarist Michael Lindsey performs selections from Bardenklange, a monumental collection of character pieces written for classical guitar by Romantic composer J.K. Mertz (1806 - 1856). JK Mertz was in the first generation of composers to write music specifically for the instrument, with Bardenklange (Bardic Sounds) enduring as his most important contribution to the classical guitar repertoire. This monumental collection of Romantic character pieces was inspired by the style of the piano music of the era. The audience will have the opportunity to hear a live performance of lesser-known classical guitar music and gain an appreciation for classical guitar music in one of its earliest styles.
