BOSTON — Lexington Composer Hayg Boyadjian’s composition, Mi Tango, for solo guitar, will be performed by guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan, as part of the Boston Classical Guitar Society’s (BCGS) Festival. The festival, which will include lectures, demonstrations and concerts, will take place on Saturday, April 16, starting at 10 a.m. and concluding with the last concert at 8 p.m.
Caplan will perform at 4 p.m. at the Gordon Chapel, Old South Church, 645 Boylston St., Copley Square. Tickets for this single concert can be obtained by visiting www.bostonguitar.org.
Caplan will also perform solo works by Kevin Siegfried and Francine Trester.
Mi Tango was recorded by Caplan for a solo Boyadjian CD recording that includes also five chamber works of his. The CD was released last October by Albany Records and received a very positive review in Fanfare Magazine. Critic Barnaby Rayfield wrote about Mi Tango: “Stunningly played by Aaron Larget-Caplan ….an energetic homage to Piazzolla’s modern tango …there are many innovations of rhythm and sound effects from Boyadjian.”
An excerpt from Boyadjian’s solo CD, titled “Vientos,” can be heard on YouTube, and the CD is available on www.amazonmusic.com.
Within the last month, Caplan has performed Mi Tango in California, Las Vegas and, three weeks ago, in Waltham.
