Santa Monica Lookout
|Santa Monica Library Presents Classical Guitar Concert||
When one lives in a city as breathtakingly beautiful and unique as Santa Monica, inevitably that city will be shared with visitors.
By Jorge Casuso
A masters student, Moore will perform works ranging from transcriptions of Bach to 20th Spanish works written for the instrument, which was popularized by Andres Segovia in the late 1920s and early 30s. The concert will take place Saturday, August 23 at 2 p.m.
Moore’s performance will include Bach’s “Violin Sonata I,” “Sonata for Guitar” by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco and “Homenaje” by Manuel de Falla.
Although the classical guitar repertoire is limited compared to that of the piano or violin, Moore likes to extend the instrument’s reach through improvisation.
“It puts you completely in the moment; you stop thinking and just start feeling the flow, almost as if you are just tapping into this flowing thing that was already happening."
Moore earned a BA degree in Music Performance in 2013 from Buffalo State College, where he was a winner of the Young Artists Concerto Competition in 2012.
After graduating from the Master program, Moore plans to earn a doctorate in classical guitar performance.
