Cambridge, MA December 10, 2011 Classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan presents an evening of contemporary music in the genre of a lullaby with his latest New Lullaby Project Premiere Concert at the New School of Music, 25 Lowell Street at 8pm. With many of the composers present Aaron will premiere five new lullabies and give the Cambridge premieres to six others. Tickets are $15. Milk and cookies will be served in a meet-the-artist & composer reception.
"I thought the project would be finished with the release of the CD New Lullaby (2010)," said founder Aaron Larget-Caplan, "but it continues as I keep receiving new lullabies that I really like and the collaboration is magical. I even have two 12-tone lullabies; Schoenberg would be so happy!"
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Colorado, Aaron Larget-Caplan attended the New England Conservatory and is now faculty at the Boston Conservatory. He premiered the first New Lullaby in 2007 and has since premiered 30. He released a CD featuring 14 new lullabies in 2010 called New Lullaby, which Fanfare Magazine wrote: "This is not some godawful Classics-for-Baby CD, something new has been attempted here." Classical Guitar Magazine (UK) called it "Ideal late-night listening", and a young fan expressed it as "Mom, this is the music I want to fall asleep to for the rest of my life."
Composers featured in tonight's concert includes Greater Boston composers: Michael Veloso, Francine Trester (Berkley), John McDonald (Tufts), Hayg Boyadjian, & Martin Schreiner, as well as Alan Fletcher (CO), Thomas Schuttenhelm (Hartt School of Music, CT), Demetrius Spaneas (Five Towns College, NY), Canary Burton, Patricia Julien (University of Vermont), Jacob Mashak, and Thomas L. Read (UVM).
