The Berkeley Hillside Club is delighted to present an old friend in a new context. Tim Fox has graced our stage in past as part of the eclectic, gypsy-jazz-inflected group, Pickpocket Ensemble, and in his own swing ensemble, Dangerous Rhythm. But his first love as a guitarist remains the classical repertoire, at which he is a master, Don't miss this remarkable artist performing in our acoustically-excellent hall.
Timothy Fox has pursed this muse of wood and wire for longer than he cares to remember. He holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in guitar performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He has received guidance in this pursuit from Leo Brouwer, Abel Carlevaro, Bill Connors, Michael Lorimer, Pepe Romero, Philip Rosheger, and George Sakellariou. He learned from every single man jack of them, though, ultimately, are we not all self-taught?
The music to be presented at this recital has at least one thing in common: it is all music written for the guitar. There are no arrangements, no transcriptions. Among the composers, some are guitarists, some not, but all intended these musical thoughts for this particular instrument. Purity, complexity, simplicity. Mr. Fox promises his very best effort.
