      Louise Hanson Dyer Colloquium:  JOAQUÍN RODRIGO AND THE GUITAR

      Speakers: Javier Suárez-Pajares and Walter Aaron Clark

      Friday, 28 July 2023 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM AEST

      This colloquium is presented as part of the 2023 Guitar Festival at the Conservatorium and the Louise Hanson Dyer Colloquia Series.

      To mark the launch of their ground-breaking new book – A Light in the Darkness: The Music and Life of Joaquín Rodrigo – Walter Aaron Clark and Javier Suárez-Pajares will consider the Spanish composer’s remarkable and multi-faceted engagement with the guitar and guitarists. Javier Suárez-Pajares will focus on the relationship with Regino Sainz de la Maza, who inspired Rodrigo’s early music for the instrument leading up to the globally-celebrated Concierto de Aranjuez. Walter Aaron Clark will discuss Rodrigo’s personal and professional relationship with Los Romeros, which shaped Rodrigo’s later engagement with the guitar, from the 1960s to the 1990s, and enhanced his reputation, especially in the United States.

      Melbourne Conservatorium of Music postgraduate researcher Nathan Sinclair will perform music by Rodrigo to accompany the event.

      Javier Suárez-Pajares is professor of musicology at the Complutense University of Madrid, where he resides.
      Walter Aaron Clark is professor of musicology at the University of California, Riverside, and the founder/director of the Center for Iberian and Latin American Music. He resides in Riverside, California.
      Nathan Sinclair is a Classical Spanish guitarist based in Melbourne specialising in the performance, arrangement, and pedagogy of instrumental guitar music.
