Pezzimenti, Cotton concert at TWU to feature selections from new CD

11/01/06


DENTON — Classical guitarists Carlo Pezzimenti and Aaron Cotton will perform selections from their new CD, “Diplogenesis,” in concert Tuesday, Nov. 14, at Texas Woman’s University. The concert, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods, located on TWU’s Denton campus. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

Mr. Pezzimenti, an adjunct assistant professor at TWU, and Mr. Cotton, a noted guitarist and a 2004 graduate of TWU, recently released their new CD on the Mapleshade Records label.

The concert will include pieces by Mexican composer Ernesto Garcia de Leon, Cajun composer Brian Clement-Foreman and Spanish composers Manuel de Falla and Enrique Granados. Mr. Pezzimenti and Mr. Cotton will perform on two legendary classical guitars made by the master guitar makers Ignacio and Gabriel Fleta from Barcelona, Spain.

Mr. Pezzimenti began studying guitar at age 13 while living with his family in Italy. He often traveled during the summer to Spain to study under Andres Segovia, “the father of classical guitar.” Mr. Pezzimenti eventually earned a degree in music from the prestigious Morlacchi Conservatory in Perugia, and soon after started his professional career. He has performed in the United States, Europe and Latin America, and in 2005, he completed a three-week tour of China.

Mr. Cotton began performing in public by the age of 12, and in 2001, he was invited to present several recitals in England. He received his bachelor of arts in music from TWU in 2004, and has since continued to perform nationally and internationally. He was awarded first place in the 2005 Eastfield College Classic Guitar Festival and Competition in Mesquite.
