New Lullabies in Nashua, Aaron Larget-Caplan guitar
Nashua, NH December 18, 2011 Classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan presents an afternoon All-Ages concert of contemporary music in the genre of a lullaby with his latest New Lullaby Project Premiere Concert at Studio 99, 17 Factory St, Nashua. Aaron will give the New Hampshire premiere to 11 new lullabies by 10 New England composers. Advanced tickets are $12, $8 seniors/students and $15/$10 at the door. Milk and cookies will be served in a meet-the-artist reception. Pajamas are most welcome.
"I began the New Lullaby Project in 2006 and thought the it 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 feel should be heard. Plus the collaborating with artists and introducing new music 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 today's concert includes: 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).
