Abstract

The University Guitar Ensemble has been invited to present a recital in February, 2007 in Portland, Oregon at a Northwest Divisional Conference of MENC (The National Association for Music Education). Our existing repertoire includes important works by Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi, Franz Josef Haydn, and Isaac Albéniz. These works were not originally written for a guitar ensemble but have been transcribed from music for other instruments. To be able to present a more historically accurate interpretation of the music we will research the original scores and the performance practices of the Baroque and Classical Periods. Our program also contains five stylized dances that cover a wide scope of instrumental dance music. By researching these as danced forms and by viewing videos of dance performance, we will be ale to create a more authentic performance. Our new repertoire includes an arrangement of Russian folk music which will require research into the current and historic musical practices of that country to accurately interpret the music.
