David Rogers presents an eclectic solo guitar concert with strong leanings towards jazz, world, and classical music. David will play music from his soon to be released new CD, music from his last recording, The Lone Wild Bird, Spanish guitar favorites, a few songs by the Beatles, as well as his own ‘jazzy’ version of La Bamba. David’s background in jazz, improvisation and classical music allows him to go into many different musical genres during his concerts.
Recently termed ‘a prominent guitarist’ by the New York Times, David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, early, and world music elements into powerful, moving and virtuosic performances based on both original compositions and traditional repertoire. The Washington Post has praised his ‘astonishingly florid’ solo improvisational passage work. He has been called a ‘modern master’ of the classical guitar’ by 20th Century Guitar. Classics today.com has praised his ‘first rate instrumental artistry,’ and the Lute Society of America Quarterly has called his technique ‘formidable.’
He is an endorsing artist for GHS Strings and his music has been featured in major guitar magazines such as Fingerstyle Guitar in the United States and Akustic Gitarre in Germany. His solo and ensemble performances have been broadcast on American National Public Radio and Bayrische Rundfunk. He has given recitals and conducted master classes throughout North America, including performances and classes at the San Francisco Conservatory, the University of Southern California and The Interlochen National Arts Camp.
