Living Language -- Fifth House Ensemble and Grammy-winning classical guitarist Jason Vieaux team up to create a sonic journey ranging from centuries-old music to modern day works. Inspired by the fact that every culture of the world has a version of the guitar, the program connects faraway times and places in over an hour of continuous music, using audio interludes to conjure vivid atmospheres that morph into each new composition. Dan Visconti’s guitar concerto, Living Language, serves as the centerpiece of the program and showcases a multitude of styles from Medieval plainchant to blues, rock, and Latin dance music. Fifth House and Jason Vieaux use the varied genres on display in Living Language as a jumping off point for a stunning program of chamber and solo works from all around the world.
