Pezzimenti To Perform In TWU’s Little Chapel

10/8/04


DENTON — The acoustics in Texas Woman’s University’s Little Chapel-in-the-Woods will add to the ambiance as Carlo Pezzimenti presents a guitar recital Monday, Oct. 18. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

Pezzimenti, an adjunct assistant professor at TWU, will perform music by Latin American composers Leo Brouwer, Ernesto Garcia de Leon and Alberto Ginastera — composers who rarely are heard in the United States, he said.

“Their music is characterized by an abundance of subtlety and nuance.”

Pezzimenti began studying guitar at age 13 while living with his family in Italy. He often traveled during the summer to Santiago do Compostela, Spain, to study under Andres Segovia, “the father of classical guitar.” Pezzimenti eventually earned a degree in music from the prestigious Morlacchi Conservatory in Perugia, and soon after started his professional career.
