Classical Spanish guitar concert Saturday

Classical guitarist/composer Jamey Bellizzi will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Historic Powell House in Nevada City.

Bellizzi will premiere his Sambras del Rey Suite in the Argentine style. The concert will also feature J.S. Bach’s Lute Suite, Renaissance compositions by Dalza and Neusidler performed on Renaissance lute, the sonatas of Niccolo Paganini written for the guitar, which are rarely performed, “La Catedral” by Augustin Barrios and romantic Spanish compositions by Albeniz and Tarrega.

Bellizzi has composed more than 40 works for the classical guitar, some of which have been selected by the Guitar Foundation of America for publication. He is also a frequent contributor to Soundboard Magazine. Bellizzi is an expert on early music transcription and has many titles published by Mel Bay publications. He recently performed in Folsom for the Sacramento Guitar Society. Bellizzi teaches classical guitar, and his most recent solo recording is “El Delirio” — romantic music of Spain and Latin America.

Powell House is located at 203 S. Pine St. in Nevada City. Admission is $20. For information, call (530) 265-9685.
