This concert is part of a nationwide tour, under the auspices of Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists, to promote his new Edvard Grieg CD, to be  released this Fall by Centaur Records.

Fletcher will perform selections from his new CD, an all-Grieg album in which he himself wrote the guitar transcriptions.  CDs will be available at the concert.

Major works will include Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, and Suite Compostelana by the Catalan composer Federico Mompou,  to celebrate the 115th anniversary of the composer’s birth.   Fletcher recorded a highly acclaimed CD of Mompou’s music on Centaur Records (CRC 2588, 2002).

Fletcher will also perform music from Michael Praetorius’s Terpsichore;   Courante from the Third Cello Suite by Bach; the ever popular  Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tárrega  and  a  Passacagli  by  Girolamo Frescobaldi.

Fletcher will perform Diary of a Camino   by American composer Jeremy Gill.  Fletcher performed the world premiere of this work  last  April   at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall.

The final work on the program will be  Fletcher’s transcription of Paganini’s dazzling Caprice no. 24.
