THE BLACK CEDAR TRIO: guitars, electronics, and evocative chamber music

Please join us on Thursday, August 22d at 8pm for an evening of contemporary-classical guitar and an evocative program of chamber music that spans 25 years.

Giacomo Fiore, who has just completed his Ph.D, will present a mixed program of music from the past 10 years that will include a wide variety of different guitars and electronics. Here’s what the SF Classical Examiner had to say about a recent performance:

Each of the works on this program presented its own set of challenges, and Fiore was clearly up to all of them. He performed with a very unassuming style, always focused entirely on his instrument, always sensitive that each note sound (and resound) with just the right intonation […] This was certainly one of the more well-informed programs in the Old First Concerts series; but the listening experience was far more than an academic exercise.

Fiore is joined by The Black Cedar Trio, composed of Nancy Kim (cello), Steve Lin (guitar), and Kris Palmer (wood flute), who will take us through a catalog of more than 25 years of chamber music.

The South Bay Guitar Society: “They perform beautifully together, perfect synchronization of subtle rhythms and phrases.”

The New York Concert Review: “Kris Palmer is among the few current performers on any instrument to fully understand the nature of Baroque music.”
