This program features two of today’s leading classical guitar virtuosi- the American, David Starobin, and the Croatian, Robert Belinic. Starobin opens with music by the shadowy early 19th century Czech composer, Wenzeslaus Matiegka, performed on a Viennese guitar. Robert Belinic then presents the New York premiere of Nikita Koshkin’s Sonata No. 1 (1998), Russia’s leading composer for guitar. Staying with the Russian theme, Belinic and Starobin close the concert with Fernando Sor’s final work- his guitar duo, “Souvenir de Russie, op. 63”.
