Guitarist Dan Lippel will perform this Wednesday, March 3 at 7:30p.m. in Studzinski Hall.
Lippel's performance will include classical music from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras in addition to 20th century and present day compositions.
The audience can expect to hear work from composers as varied as Bach, Elliott Carter, Toru Takemitsu and Isaac Albeniz. Among the present-day work that Lippel intends to present are compositions by Bowdoin's own Associate Professor of Music, Vineet Shende, who teaches courses in composition, music theory, orchestration, and electronic and Asian music.
Lippel and Shende have worked closely for more than six years as friends and colleagues, and Shende has recorded on Lippel's independent label, New Focus Recordings.
This is Lippel's third time visiting Bowdoin professionally. A soloist, chamber musician, and recording artist, Lippel's recent performances include a solo tour of Germany, recitals in Istanbul, Chicago and New York, and chamber music performances on Helsinki's Musica Nova Festival, the Macau International Music Festival in China, and on the Mostly Mozart Festival at New York's Alice Tully Hall.
Lippel has performed throughout the United States as a member of the "International Contemporary Ensemble" and "Flexible Music." He enjoys working closely with composers, whether established or emerging, and promotes the arts through his roles as an educator, lecturer and master class instructor.
Dan Lippel's performance is part of Bowdoin's ongoing Guitar Series.
