March 1, 2018 - Recital of contemporary Mexican music for guitar with Dr. Dieter Hennings & University of Kentucky Guitar Quartet
As part of its 2018 Music Series, La Música de México, the Mexican Cultural Institute is proud to present a concert by Dr. Dieter Hennings & the University of Kentucky Guitar Quartet. Dr. Hennings is Associate Professor of Music at the University of Kentucky and an active proponent of new music, particularly that of Latin America. Along with Jeremy Andrew Bass, Mario Ortiz, and Andrew Rhinehart, Hennings will play a program centered around the guitar music of the Mexican composer and conductor Juan Trigos (1965-). Following the influence and passion Manuel M. Ponce had for the classical guitar, since 1989 Mr. Trigos has created a remarkable body of works for guitar of great scope, vision, and beauty, that are becoming staples of the Mexican new music repertoire for guitar.
