The Melbourne Conservatorium of Music presents its Guitar Perspectives Concert Series for 2017. The launch will feature Mauricio Carrasco performing the Bach Lute Suites on guitar.
Mauricio will perform at Melba Hall in conjunction with an exhibition at the Grainger Museum, Instrument of Change: Visions of the Guitar in the Early Twentieth Century. This exhibition delves into the guitar’s varied contexts, from the BMG (Banjo, Mandolin, Guitar) movement of the late Victorian era to Hispanic, Pacific and North American guitar traditions up to the 1930s. It reveals how Percy Grainger engaged with the guitar through these traditions, embracing the instrument as both performer and composer. The exhibition also includes some rare and beautiful instruments on-loan from a private collection.
