Programme:

Hommage a Ivan Wyschnégradsky pour deux guitars (1980) by Philippe Leroux

with Graham Banfield, guitar

 

Though he plays the most popular instrument in the world, guitarist Rob MacDonald digs and digs to find some of the most rarely heard, challenging, and rewarding new repertoire in existence.  This focus comes from a distinct interest in composers who generally risk taking things too far and sometimes discover fascinating new ways of treating the classical guitar.  He teaches at the University of Toronto.
