The second year of the Lakeside Performing Arts Series will begin with a multimedia program by classical guitarist William Feasley at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, at St. James' Episcopal Church, 96 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles.
The concert, "Echoes of Goya," will pair a Romantic-era repertoire by Feasley with paintings and etchings by the renowned Spanish artist Francisco Goya.
Feasley will perform three short works by Spanish guitarist and composer Fernando Fernandiere, as well as the music of Fernando Sor, a Spanish guitarist who enjoyed the patronage of the Duke and Duchess of Alba during Goya's alleged liason with the latter. Sor's "Grand Solo" will be performed while Goya's portrait of the duchess is on view. The program will also include operatic selections by Enrique Granados and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, paired with Goya's "Naked Maja," "Clothed Maja" and other portraits.
“I have an indelible association of Spain, the art of Goya and the guitar. I thus end the program with 'Invocation and Dance' by Rodrigo paired with Goya’s ghoulish masterpiece 'The Incantation' and then, to end on a note of light and brilliance, 'Guajiras de Lucia' by the Spanish flamenco master paired with Goya’s final and incandescent 'The Milk Maid of Bordeaux,'" Feasley said in a news release.
Tickets are $10 for adults and free for children younger than 18.
