Casual Consert Series – Stephen Guerra, Solo Brazilian Guitar

May 18, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free Will Offering

Like Spanish flamenco, Brazilian guitar is a distinct technical and aesthetic approach to the instrument we recognize as the classical guitar, an approach strongly associated with Brazil’s first two and longest-living musical genres: choro and samba. In this program, Stephen will perform a selection of his favorite compositions for solo Brazilian guitar from the late 1800s (João Pernambuco) to the 1960s (Baden Powell) to today with a few of his compositions.

Italian American guitarist-composer Stephen Guerra performs and teaches Brazilian choro around the world, often touring with legend Rogério Souza. Stephen’s published multiple albums and scores with Mel Bay, Guitar Chamber Music Press, and independently on Bandcamp and streaming platforms, including his album of originals recorded in Brazil, No Balanço do Choro-Samba (Oct 2023). Stephen teaches music theory and the choro ensemble at the University at Buffalo.
