Stephen Robinson, classical guitar and Boyd Jones, harpsichord
In 2006, Stephen Robinson performed a solo recital for GuitarSarasota. Currently, he performs a duo concert featuring music for guitar and harpsichord. Both Mr Robinson and Mr Jones are Professors of Music at Stetson University. The two perform an interesting “plucked” program. Stephen Robinson is heralded but The New York Times for his “effortless virtuosity with intelligence and good taste,” and by the Tallahassee Democrat for his “sweet, pure sound, technique and … strong sense of musical and poetic phrasing,” and by Puerto Rico’s El Nuevo Dia as a “magnificent North American guitarist, full of virtuosity, magnificent technical precision, and a masterfully delivered diverse range of sound”. Boyd Jones performs extensively on both organ and harpsichord. Many recitals have been performed for colleges, universities, and churches from California to Maine to Florida. Engagements abroad include, Japan and Bulgaria. Additionally, Mr Boyd performed frequently as both organ and harpsichord soloist, and as a continuo player with several prominent orchestras.
GuitarSarasota is a non-profit organization promoting the education, appreciation and cultural significance of the classical guitar as a solo and chamber music instrument.
GuitarSarasota membership is open to all who are interested in the guitar.
