It is a special pleasure to welcome guitarists Joseph Ricker & Jamie Balmer back for another thoughtful, always surprising duo recital. In this evening's exploration of musical ports of call seldom visited here (but deeply familiar in the Catalan-Spanish world), we'll enjoy a rare and touching repertoire whose hallmarks are songfulness and intimacy. Some scores will be quick-paced. Others will linger in the ear, and in the heart, just as a long sip of Málaga or Madeira persists on the palette. The transparent La Grua acoustic and our performance platform will allow all to see and hear perfectly.
