For centuries, the guitar has been an instrument intimately associated with folk song. Though usually seen as a popular genre, occasionally, the folk song has been raised to the level of art song, and three such sets are on today’s program. Mezzo-soprano Joëlle Morris and guitarist Timothy Burris will perform Manuel da Falla's "Siete Canciones populares españolas" (1914); Matyas Seiber's "Four French Folk Songs" (1959); and Benjamin Britten's "Folksong Arrangements" (1961). Folk-song inspired guitar solos by Miguel Llobet and Daniel Fortea complete the program.
