"Cambridge is the perfect place for my "Music of the East and West" program, at the ocean's edge where nature and man are entangled and as a melting-pot where peoples of the East and West meet," says Larget-Caplan. "As a performer it is wonderful to see and feel how Cambridge audience's are so heartfelt and passionate for music; it is a performer's dream," he said. "I look forward to sharing this solo program". Larget-Caplan can be heard most recently on a May 2013 Navona Records of Capricci for guitar and string quartet by by Thomas L. Read. |
As sublimation to the nature, Aaron's program begins with 'Equinox' by the late Toru Takemitsu, a work based on a painting by Paul Klee of the same title. 'Hika' by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer, follows and is a Memoriam to Takemitsu written at his passing in 1996. "What is 'West' depends on where one stands at a given moment, and as one of the earliest cultural melting pots was Spain, Moors of the East and Christians of the West, I'm including a few Spanish classical pieces." Larget-Caplan will perform serenades and dances of the Iberian Peninsula, including masterpieces by Isaac Albéniz and Pascual Marquina. Larget-Caplan will also play re-imaginings of American popular songs by Toru Takemitsu, who is best known for being introduced to the west by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic and for the film scores of many Akira Kurosawa moves. Two New Lullabies from Aaron's new music endeavor, New Lullaby Project, will be featured. Kota Nakamura's 'Sui-Huo' and premiere number 41, Ed è Subito Sera by Ken Ueno. The concert will finish with a rarely heard virtuoso masterwork that uses many extended technique by Keigo Fujii called 'Legend of Hagoromo' a love song on a mythical scale.
