Yuri Liberzon to present varied program

Davis, CA – Davis Arts Center’s 6th Annual Classical Guitar Concert Series continues with a performance by Yuri Liberzon on May 2 at 7 pm.

Russian-born and Israeli-raised, Liberzon ranks among today’s foremost classical guitarists. His playing has been described as “Transcendent technical prowess at the service of gracious musicality.”

A frequent soloist with symphony and chamber orchestras, he has been recognized for his technical ability and musicality at both international competitions and non-profit organizations, as well as for his arrangements for guitar.

At the Arts Center, his program will consist of music arranged for guitar as well as original compositions, covering a wide span of guitar repertoire from the classical era up to the 20th century. Included are his own arrangements of the complete D Minor Partita for violin by J.S Bach and three sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti. Also on the program will be music by Russian and Spanish composers as well as music by the Beatles and American jazz pianist/composer Keith Jarrett.

Both Yale University School of Music and Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University awarded Liberzon full scholarships to study with two of the world’s leading guitar figures: Manuel Barrueco and Benjamin Verdery. He went on to successfully complete his Graduate Performance Diploma and Bachelor’s degree from Peabody and a Master’s degree from Yale.

Currently based in the Bay Area, Liberzon was granted Alien of Extraordinary Ability United States Permanent Residency based on his achievements in the music field.
