Two masters of the guitar perform in the Connecticut Guitar Festival’s 2023 kick off concert in the beautiful gallery of MoCA Westport.
Jordan Dodson has been described by Performance Today as “one of the top young guitarists of his generation,” is a musician and educator. A passionate advocate of contemporary music, Dodson has given the premiere of hundreds of new works. In 2013 he was the first guitarist to graduate from the Curtis Institute of Music’s new guitar program. In the same year he won Astral Artists’ National Auditions and was selected to be Young Artist in Residence on American Public Media.
Rene Izquierdo has firmly established himself as one of the world’s classical guitar virtuosos. Classical Guitar Magazine describes this Cuban born virtuoso’s playing as “unforgettable versatility, sensitivity and sublime musicianship.” They also describe “his natural and instinctive interpretations [as] second to none: his virtuoso technique allows him absolute command of the instrument, subtle phrasing, dazzling speed, beautiful tonal control… everything.”
