On January 13 and 14, the South Coast Chamber Music Series presents “Ritmos Caliente” with virtuoso guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan. This winter concert features a selection of spicy Latin American music including Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Fantasia for Guitar and Piano, Manuel de Falla’s seductive cycle “Siete Canciones Populares Españolas,” and Niccolò Paganini’s piquant Terzetto Concertante. The program holds the boil with Joaquin Turina’s Piano Quartet, and Astor Piazzolla’s shimmering “Oblivion” and “Summer” for piano trio.
Larget-Caplan is an international touring and recording artist, and “a unique talent not to be missed,” per The Washington Post. He has performed solo and chamber music in Russia, Europe, and the United States. He will perform with Chamber musicians Janice Weber, piano and Artistic Director; Piotr Buczek, violin; Don Krishnaswami, viola; and Timothy Roberts, cello. Saturday’s concert will take place at 4:00 pm at St. Gabriel’s Church, 124 Front Street, Marion. Sunday’s concert will take place at 4:00 pm at St. Peter’s Church, 351 Elm Street, South Dartmouth. Admission is $20 at the door, or purchase in advance online at www.nbsymphony.org/season-subscriptions#chamber-tickets (please bring receipt for admission).
The South Coast Chamber Music Series was formed in 2001 to present high-quality classical chamber music for the communities of Southeastern Massachusetts. Each program presents an engaging array of styles, timbres, and artists in lively acoustic environments in Marion and South Dartmouth. We joined forces with the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra in 2014, giving both organizations an opportunity to expand in all directions—more concerts, more musicians, and more music.
