Simon Shaheen, 'Oud with Guest Percussionist
Friday, Mar. 21, 2014, 7:00 pm—Fairmont, MN, Red Rock Center for the Arts
Saturday, Mar. 22, 2014, 8:00 pm—Sundin Hall
Simon Shaheen dazzles his listeners as he deftly leaps from traditional Arabic sounds to jazz and Western classical styles. His soaring technique, melodic ingenuity, and unparalleled grace have earned him international acclaim as a virtuoso on the 'oud and violin. Shaheen is one of the most significant Arab musicians, performers, and composers of his generation. His work incorporates and reflects a legacy of Arabic music, while it forges ahead to new frontiers, embracing many different styles in the process. This unique contribution to the world of arts was recognized in 1994 when Shaheen was honored with the prestigious National Heritage Award at the White House. "I want to create a world music exceptionally satisfying to the ear and for the soul," says Shaheen.
Cavatina Duo, Classical Guitar & Flute
Friday, Apr. 11, 2014—masterclass at U of MN, 3:30-5:30 pm
Saturday, Apr. 12, 2014, 8:00 pm—Sundin Hall
The Cavatina Duo, Eugenia Moliner, flute, (from Spain), hailed as a "brilliant young musician" and Denis Azabagic, guitar (from Bosnia), described as a "virtuoso with flawless technique," has become one of the most impressive combinations of its kind in the world. Award winning and talented solo artists, the Cavatina Duo has captivated audiences with their electrifying performances across North America, Europe and Asia. Critics are raving: "Style, sympathy, and technical aplomb... it's doubtful that the Cavatina's sophisticated and artistic playing could be surpassed." (Fanfare). The duo's repertoire includes music from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and contemporary periods. A high point of their concerts is music inspired by the folk traditions of their native lands of Spain and the Balkans.
