Bokyung Byun and Jason Vieaux

Emerging Korean guitarist Bokyung Byun enjoys a growing reputation sparked by her first-place finishes in international competitions and proven by her numerous performances across Asia and North America. Known for elevating contemporary compositions alongside traditional repertoire, she is celebrated by Classical Guitar Magazine as “quite extraordinary.”

NPR describes Grammy Award winner Jason Vieaux as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation.” Vieaux has earned a reputation for putting his expressive gifts and virtuosity at the service of a wonderfully wide range of music, which you will be sure to enjoy in his versatile set. Vieaux's repertoire includes:

Scarlatti, arr. Brouwer: Sonata in A Major, K. 208
Giuliani: Variations on a Theme of Handel, Op. 107
Bach: Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Minor, BWV 1001
Martin: Quatre Pieces Brèves
Ellington: In a Sentimental Mood
Metheny: Always and Forever / A Felicidade
