Yuri will be coming to Corvallis as part of his Oregon
tour in November, and those of you who may have heard him play before will all
know how good a classical guitarist he is. If you haven’t, here’s what other
people have to say:
“…If there were anyone in the classical guitar world
that could manage to combine musical elegance with architectural logic, it
would be Yuri Liberzon.”
“‘Hearing Yuri play
is like opening a bottle of wine and realizing that you have just tasted one of
the best wines you will ever experience. Ever.”
Stephen Roberts, President, Sacramento Guitar Society
Born in Novosibirsk, Russia and raised in Israel, Yuri has
been recognized for his impressive technical ability and musicality. Based on his achievements in the field of
music, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
granted him Permanent Residency as an ‘Alien of Extraordinary Ability’. Yuri
has given a countless number of concerts across the United State, multiple
media appearances and has released two albums in collaboration with Grammy
winning sound engineer and producer Nahuel Bronzini: Solo album “Ascension”
released in 2015 – music from Bach to Beatles and Keith Jarrett, and “¡Acentuado!”
released in 2017 – music of composer Astor Piazzolla featuring a collaboration
with flutist Josué Casillas. Yuri has transcribed music of Domenico Scarlatti
and Johann Sebastian Bach for guitar, and is also a great teacher!

Dear Guitar Enthusiasts, Here is the ensemble music we will be playing at the upcoming meeting December 2nd at Odd Fellows Hall starting at 7:30 pm. These are the pieces we plan on performing at the Guitar Society Winter Concert on Saturday December 14th at the Corvallis-Benton County Library.
Everyone is welcome to come and join in. The parts suitably reflect different levels of playing, so take a look at the scores and decide which parts you would like to play, print them out, work on them a bit, and bring them along to the meeting with your guitar. Don’t worry about whether you can play everything, and don’t feel obliged to perform in the concert. The goal is to encourage all local guitarists to pick up their guitars, come along and have fun!
