Jacopo’s playing partner, Kerry Lynch, first studied guitar at the Royal Conservatory but later switched to flute. Since then, she has performed in masterclasses with some of the world’s greatest artists. She hosts the live podcast “…but with all due respect” and even plays in the alternative rock band “Austin Miller and Band”! Their latest album being “Live at Webster’s Theatre”
The first half of the concert is devoted to guitar solos: “Bach’s Fugue and Allegro”, followed by Giuliani’s “Grand Overture” then, getting into the Scottish mood, “Three Celtic Pieces”.
After intermission, Kerry joined Jacopo for a live performance of their recent recording “The International Poet.” It was new music written by contemporary composers in Scotland, Chile, Brazil, Italy and other countries, imagining what might have been written by Robert Burns today, had he been alive. – and had the advantage of easy communication and collaboration. A series of fascinating tracks, including “The Deil’s Awa wi’ the Exciseman”, “Auld Lang Syne Samba”, “Ae Fond Kiss” and “Whare hae ye was sae braw, lad?”
An amazing evening of very unusual but interesting and entertaining music played by amazing musicians and enjoyed by an audience that just didn’t want to leave.
