Interview with WOSU's John Rittmeyer

Cleveland area classical guitarist Jason Vieaux won a Grammy Award last Sunday in Los Angeles in the category of Best Classical Instrumental Solo for his album, Play.  He'll be John Rittmeyer's guest on the next Fretworks, for conversation about his career and some performances recorded when he was in Columbus last month.  Fretworks has already featured tracks from this great CD of guitar favorites on the program in the past, but Jason will be playing a couple of them live in the studio for us.

Jason has recently joined forces with Yolanda Kondonassis to release their first duo recording, Together, which features original works for harp and guitar including Alan Hovhaness' Spirit of Trees, Xavier Montsalvatge's Fantasia, Máximo Diego Pujol's Suite Magica, and two world premiere recordings of works commissioned by the duo: Knock on Wood (2012) by Keith Fitch and Hypnotized (2013) by Gary Schocker. Together will be released on Azica Records on January 27, 2015 at all major retailers. The duo will make its New York debut at the 92Y on February 28, 2015 as part of the Art of the Guitar series.

Join me for Fretworks on WOSU - Classical 101: Columbus OH this Valentines Saturday February 14 at 7 pm and the following Wednesday evening at 7   for Jason Vieaux.
