From Tarrega To Django: The Art Of Guitar

Stéphane Wrembel: guitar
Michael Sheridan: guitar

Django Reinhardt was not only perhaps the greatest master of Jazz guitar who ever lived, he was also an accomplished composer and classical musician. Classical guitar is totally embedded in his playing. Together Stephane and Michael will present a repertoire including classical guitar pieces by Tarrega, Sor, Albeniz, Sanlucar as well as a collection of Reinhardt’s compositions from Django L’mpressioniste. The concert will end with the traditional Django Gypsy Swing and French Musette repertoire. Be prepared for a journey through the true soul of the guitar!

Born in France and now based in New Jersey, Wrembel is most known for his Grammy Award®-winning composition “Bistro Fada” from the Academy Award®-winning Woody Allen movie "Midnight In Paris." Since 2001, Wrembel has released over a dozen critically acclaimed releases including a series of recordings in tribute to Reinhardt under the nom de plume, The Django Experiment. Wrembel is also the producer of the annual Django A Gogo Festival in Maplewood, New Jersey, and New York City.
