    Praised for his lyrical voice and ebullient virtuosity, Paulo Martelli is recognized as one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in Brazil today. A gifted performer, he has appeared frequently in concerts, master classes and on television, displaying both remarkable facility and astute interpretation. He is also a dedicated scholar and pedagogue, and through his efforts has become one of the leading proponents of the classical guitar in Brazil.

    In addition to regular performances, Paulo is also a professor at the Escola de Música do Estado de São Paulo and founder of Movimento Violão, the premier concert series for the guitar in Brazil.

    The program will include works of Bach played on the 11-string guitar, and selections by Brazilian and North American composers played on the 6-string guitar.

    A reception will follow the concert.

    Jeremy Lyons recap

    Posted By on June 27, 2011

    Jeremy Lyons - click to enlargeThanks to everyone who joined us for the Jeremy Lyons concert and master class this weekend. Your show of support enables us to hold more of these events, and we are already looking forward to a larger concert season next year.

    For those who were unable to join us, Mr. Lyons played a fantastic concert Sunday afternoon for a very enthusiastic audience. His program included Sonata in a minor, BWV 1003 by J. S. Bach, Hommage à Chopin by Alexandre Tansman, Fantaisie, Op.7 by Fernando Sor, and concluded with Junto al Generalife and Invocación y Danza by Joaquín Rodrigo. His sensitive and seemingly effortless playing garnered him a well-deserved standing ovation.

    The master class on Friday was equally successful. Five fortunate students played for Jeremy Lyons and the audience, and all did a superb job. Many thanks to all who participated and attended. I’m sure everyone walked away with valuable insight.
