Take your sweetheart's hand and spend Valentine's Day listening to classical music by guitarist Peter Fletcher at the Apalachicola Margaret Key Library, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
"Peter is very approachable and engages the audience from the first chords," said Jill Rourke, library director. "This program is an exciting blend of music from the Renaissance Period through the 20th century, each piece chosen to excite the senses or create calm reflection. "
Fletcher, who splits his time between Detroit and New York City, performs over 100 concerts a year including a solo recital in 2017 at prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York.
"Peter has the artistic sense and technical skill to perform a wide range of works and this is reflected in the evening's program," said Rourke.
The Valentine's Day performance will feature "Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1" and "Lute Suite No. 3" by J. S. Bach, Paganini’s exciting and ever popular "Caprice No. 24," and the fiendishly difficult "Five Bagatelles" by British composer William Walton.
Other works include Dowland, Llobet and Segovia and the great Spanish masterwork "Cordoba" by Isaac Albeniz.
This music performance is part of the Margaret Key Literary Salon, a quarterly event that features artistic performance and conversation.
