“Classical guitar is appealing because it’s not just an orchestral instrument,” Belt says. People who aren’t familiar with classical music can attend a classical guitar performance and have a frame of reference from which to relate to it. As a result, Belt says, it can be “a bridge” for people to cross over from mainstream music to modern and classical composition.
It’s only fitting, then, that the Accidental Music Festival will close with a guitar recital. The Guitar Series at UCF will host Dieter Hennings, a guitar professor from the University of Kentucky at Lexington, who will perform contemporary classical guitar pieces, including Juan Trigos’ “Partita” for solo guitar.
“The guitar is the instrument of the 20th century, the most popular instrument in the world,” Belt says.
Belt, Hennings and the other players in this festival are taking it – as well as the other instruments they specialize in – well into the 21st. n
