Matthew Fagan (Guitars) & Daniel Tucceri (Piano)

MATTHEW Fagan and Daniel Tucceri come together to perform“Solstice”. Join them both for a concert of classical music at its emotive and technical best. A musical journey into our mythology and rediscovery of ancient music, acoustic instruments from traditions of Celtic, Classical to Romantic.

Featuring performances of master works of the classical masters Vivaldi,Beethoven, Rodrigo, Bach, Paganini with stunning new arrangements for 10 and 6 string Spanish Guitar and piano. Be prepared for exciting performances of rediscovered master works such as Beethoven Symphony No. 5 and Rodrigo’s Spanish guitar masterpiece Concierto de Aranjuez with a new expression, recomposing with virtuosic improvisations while keeping faithful to the original score of the master composers.

Matthew Fagan has long been established as one of Australia’s finest exponents of the guitar. Matthew has released a number of albums ranging from world music to classical and contemporary, in both solo and group format.

Matthew has worked and toured with Billy Connolly, Shirley Bassey, Natalie Cole, Michael Crawford and the Buena Vista Social Club. He has also been featured on radio and TV, including Channel 7’s ‘Winners and Losers’ and ABC TV 1. On the latter production, Fagan performed his virtuosic rendition of Bach’s famous Toccata in D Minor. The same song opens Daniel Tucceri’s debut album, ‘Tempest’. With a passion for music’s more extreme end, Tucceri has performed and worked with artists such as Matt Skitz Sanders, The Rev Kriss Hades, Mick Harvey, Brian Hooper, Hugo Race and Mayhem (Norway). Daniel’s repertoire features works by Debussy, Satie, Bach, Chopin and Beethoven and he has shared that with audiences from the stage to the street.

The collaboration of Guitarist Matthew Fagan performing on 10 String and 6 String Australian Made Spanish Classical Guitars with Pianist Daniel Tucceri is a deep experience of human emotion, and rediscovery of mythology through a contemporary eye.

This will be a truly special concert of classical music performed with renewed vigour, passion and technicality www.matthew-fagan.com www.youtube.com.mjb1fagan
