“Aaron Larget-Caplan is a riveting artist whose musical styling begs immediate attention. His classical guitar performance was a treasure…”
-G. Acosta, The Washington Post
With performances in Spain, Italy, and on both US coasts as a soloist and chamber musician, Aaron Larget-Caplan rides the razor’s edge of the guitar. He is a unique performer and communicator, who is able to link the new and old, and the difficult and not in music and other art forms. Born in the guitar capital of Oklahoma and raised in Colorado, Aaron began playing the classical guitar at age 16 and gave his debut at the Tabor Opera House one year later. Since then he has premiered over two-dozen compositions, founded a music and dance group, commissioned over a dozen new works, and appeared on National Public Radio in New York, Oregon, Colorado and Maine. He will make his orchestral soloist debut in 2010 with maestro Patrick Botti.
In 2006 Aaron released his debut CD, Tracing a wheel on water , which the great American composer Ned Rorem called “Musical, affecting and skilled.” That year he also founded the Spanish classical music and flamenco dance group ¡Con Fuego! In 2007 Aaron began the New Lullaby Project, a multi-compositonal endeavor that collects new lullabies from composers throughout the world for guitar solo. A CD featuring these works will be out in 2009.www.aaronlc.com www.newlullabyproject.com
