BLUE POOL at Beyond Baroque

  • Beyond Baroque 681 Venice Boulevard Venice, CA, 90291 United States (map)

Russell Steinberg presents BLUE POOL, a classical guitar concert at Beyond Baroque on Friday, November 4th, 2016 at 8 p.m.  The concert features original slack key-inspired guitar preludes accompanied by slideshows of locations in Maui. 
The pieces are from Steinberg’s new Blue Pool CD that Hawaiian slack key master George Kahumoku Jr. calls a “magical classical twist in Slack key guitar tunings.” The program also includes guitar works by Tárrega, Turina, and Villa-Lobos.

"In this music, I’m after the deep resonance of Hawaiian Slack Key style with its low tunings and gentle melodies. The beauty of slack key and the island of Maui together helped me rediscover classical guitar."
Russell Steinberg
