In the second concert of the 2019-2020 Music for Peace Series, we present the ravishingly beautiful sounds of the classical guitar for the first time in the series. World-renowned guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk performs works of Bach, Paganini and Elizondo, with the equally renowned violinist James Buswell and cellist Carol Ou, who together form the BFO Trio.
The concert includes transcriptions of two beautiful pieces by Mexican composer José Elizondo. Elizondo's "La Alborada de la Esperanza ("The Dawn of Hope, 2019) was performed in a concert in honor of Pope Francis, who had previously attended a performance of "Otoño en Buenos Aires" (1997). José Elizondo has made these transcriptions specifically for this Music for Peace concert. (Pope Francis became a hero to the peace movement when he declared that possession and deployment, not only use, of nuclear weapons, is immoral, most recently at Hiroshima in November.)
