Eight World Premieres of Works for Classical Guitar and Various Instruments by UCLA Composers

Schoenberg Hall

Featuring UCLA Artist-In-Residence, Eliot Fisk.

World-renowned and virtuoso classical guitarist Eliot Fisk performs eight world premieres of works for classical guitar by UCLA composition students. Composition students collaborated with Fisk in composing these works around the classical guitar during Fisk's residency. UCLA DMA student Giovanni Placentini will be joining Fisk in this performance.

The UCLA Composition Area is excited to showcase this innovative project, a first of its kind for our Composition students. Much preparation went into this performance, including a week of intense rehearsals and ongoing dialectic between composers and Fisk. Originally planned for the Spring of 2020, the project has grown and flourished through the past two years and fine-tuned over several hours of Zoom calls.

This program is made possible by the Joyce S. and Robert U. Nelson Fund. Robert Uriel Nelson was a revered musicologist and music professor at UCLA, who, together with his wife, established a generous endowment for the university to make programs like this possible.
