Some (older and newer) News

Greetings! I hope everyone is having a relaxing summer. I wanted to tell you about some exciting projects that happened this summer, and some that will happen in the Fall.

New You Tube video! : Elliott Carter’s “Changes, for Solo Guitar”. Here’s the link.

I performed two Concertos recently; David Del Puerto’s “Zephyr”, for guitar and ensemble, with New Paths in Music , and Rodrigo’s “Concerto de Aranjuez” with the Manchester Music Festival Orchestra . Both were recorded professionally, and sound clips will be posted soon.

I also returned to Tanglewood , to play guitar and mandolin on two concerts at the Festival of Contemporary Music, Unsuk Chin’s “ Akrostichon Wortspiel” for soprano and ensemble, and Mario Davidovsky’s “Festino”, for guitar, viola, cello and bass. The New York Times review said “Also on Sunday evening the guitarist Oren Fader presided over a lively account of Mario Davidovsky’s invitingly pointillistic “Festino” (1991)” Here’s a link to the full NY Times review.

Other highlights include a week-long Composers residency at the University of Oregon , Eugene , with the Fireworks Ensemble , and a duo performance with violinist Katie Lansdale in Carnegie’s Weill Hall in New York , and a full recital of Spanish and Latin American music in Northern New Hampshire (look for our Piazzolla “Histoire du Tango” on Youtube, soon to be posted).

I have articles and interviews in both Classical Guitar , and Guitar Review magazines this month. The Classical Guitar article is a profile of me, and how i make a living as a classical and new music guitarist in New York City, and the Guitar Review article is a remembrance of Thomas Humphrey, the great guitar luthier, on his recent passing.
