February 28, 2007 "Rising Stars 2007 Part 2/Jerome Ducharme Interview"

This week's program features music by some rising stars, and an interview with the young Montreal guitarist Jerome Ducharme, winner of the 2005 Guitar Foundation of America solo guitar competition. The program begins with a two guitar arrangement of the first movement of Vivaldi's Concerto for 2 violins, RV564, by Canada's HK Duo: Drew Henderson and Michael Kolk.

Italian guitarist Massimo Felici is also a competition winner, and also one of Italy's rising stars. He performs Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Guitar Concerto #2 in C, op. 160 with the Orchestra Sinfonica Abruzzese, conducted by Michael Summers.

Each year the Guitar Foundation of America hosts a solo guitar competition, and Montreal guitarist Jerome Ducharme was the 2005 winner. Part of the competition requirements include mandatory pieces that each competitor must play, including a set piece composed just for the competition. San Antonio composer Matthew Dunne's "Appalachian Summer" was the set piece for the 2005 GFA competition.

The program concludes with the HK Duo performing their original arrangements of some lesser-known piano works of Joaquin Rodrigo: "Serenata Espanola", and "Vendedor de Chanquetes".
