From 2012 concert at Unison:
“Guitar Music of Spain and Latin America” will feature works of Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Paraguay, Mexico, Cuba, U.S.A — each with their own unique blend of Native American, African, and European influences — as well as Flamenco-inspired works of Spain. This program contains compositions by Albeniz, Tarrega, Villa-Lobos, Morel, Lauro, Brouwer, Barrios and original work by the performer.
Guitarist and composer David Temple is a graduate of the Music School at Eastern Michigan University and is Vice-President and a founding member of the Mid-Hudson Classical Guitar Society. He has presented concerts throughout the region, with a mission to present programs full of color and variety, appealing to the newcomer as well as the aficionado. He has recorded four albums, highlighting four centuries of music, including his original compositions and arrangements.
David’s original music has been used internationally in films, television, and other media. Noah Fleisher of the Taconic Weekend reviewed the CD “Night Dances: Music of Spain and Latin America” and stated, “David is one of those rare musicians of any genre that is able to play directly what is coming from his head, without barrier between mind, finger and fretboard.” David teaches at Bard Conservatory, Preparatory Division and at his home-studio in Red Hook, NY.
