BMF Concert 3: Karin Meets Dragon : Bangalow Music Festival 2019
Leading Australian guitar soloist, Karin Schaupp and Colorado Symphony conductor Chris Dragon discuss the history of the guitar in this conversational concert program that traces the history of the guitar - one of the most significant and noble ancient instruments embraced by cultures around the world. Exploring the last 400 years of this 4000-year-old instrument, Karin is joined in performance with festival artists to perform works by Rodrigo, De Falla, Haydn and Brisbane’s own Rob Davidson, as well as the little-known but extraordinary German early Baroque composer, Athanasius Kircher who, like Leonardo da Vinci, was honoured with the title “Master of a Hundred Arts” as a genius in multiple fields including medicine, geology, history, religion and music.
