Highlights of the 2007 Fall Concert Season

David Tanenbaum’s 07-08 season included performances in Brazil; Henze‘s El Cimarron in Tijuana Mexico; the world premiere of Jorge Liderman‘s Imaginary Tunes with Quarteto Latinamericano at Cal Berkeley; a Julian Bream tribute at the 92nd Street Y in New York; and the world premiere of Terry Riley‘s new triple concerto for two guitars and violin, Soltierraluna, with the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra.

He also premiered Five Pieces for Guitar and Electronics by Ronald Bruce Smith in a featured concert at the Festival of New American Music in Sacramento, a concert which was voted the second best of the entire Sacramento year by critic Edward Ortiz. He wrote:

“…Tanenbaum delivered one of the most wide-ranging and intelligently conceived programs for one instrument in recent memory. And he left no doubt that he is one of this country’s best classical guitarists…This outstanding performance was clearly one of the best of the festival and of the concert year. It was delivered with intelligence and urgency, as if Tanenbaum was single-handedly ushering the classical guitar into the open-book realm of the 21st century.”
