Lunchtime Recital – Matthew Sear, Classical Guitar

Composer Matthew Sear performs his own transcriptions of Satie’s Gnossiennes and Gymnopedies for classical guitar.

With a selection of pieces from his latest recording ’21st Century Music’, Matthew explores the intimate nature of the classical guitar in a modern idiom. Like the majority of his compositions, most pieces are musical portraits, examining the loneliness of the sea and also, the idea of secret societies in the piece ‘Ceremony’, for guitar and pipe organ.

Join us at 1.30pm for a free lunchtime recital in the beautiful acoustics of the 18th Century Chapel.
