Description:
Peter Fletcher is an American classical guitarist based in Detroit and New York City. He performs over 100 concerts a year, and his recordings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recordings labels have been critically acclaimed.
Peter offers an audience friendly, solo recital including repertoire that runs the gamut from the Renaissance Period through the 20th Century.
His current recital program features Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Lute Suite No. 1 by J. S. Bach, Paganini’s ever popular Caprice No. 24, the fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton, and Recuerdos de la Alhambra, a great favorite among audiences, by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega. In addition, Peter will perform a very special solo version of Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Major, and four preludes, which were dedicated to Segovia, by Mexican composer Manuel Ponce,
The concert will culminate with Isaac Albeniz’s Rumores de la Caleta, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.
Peter’s solo recital in 2017, at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City, was extremely well received by William Gooch for Fashion Reverie:
“As a mature artist, Fletcher stands out in his emotional interpretation of the works he performs. And this is particularly apparent in the less pyrotechnical pieces in his repertoire. Though the more virtuosic works get pulses racing, the gentler works give room for reflection and in Fletcher’s corner demonstrate more accurately his craft and technical nuance. This is good calculated move on Fletcher’s part!!”
On May 6th, 2018, he performed a solo recital on the Cathedral Cultural Series, at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, MI. In February, Peter will perform a solo Recital in Atlanta, GA under the auspices of the Atlanta Music Club.
His interests outside of music include house decorating, gardening, running and fountain pens. An avid reader, he prefers the works of Cervantes, Proust, Faulkner and Balzac.
