Back Bay Guitar Trio in Frankfurt
June 17, 2009. In cooperation with the Frankfurter Künstlerclub e.V. and composer Theodor Köhler, the U.S. Consulate General organized a concert with the Back Bay Guitar Trio from Boston/Massachussetts on June 17 at Nebbiensches Gartenhaus. The trio was founded in 2002 by David Newsam, Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music, Steve Marchena and John Mason. For an audience of about 40 the group performed pieces from their new CD "The Journey" showcasing their wide stylistic range. The trio brought energy, excitement and humor to their live performance, which not only included classical works but also Latin American compositions from Paulo Bellinati and Astor Piazzolla as well as transcriptions of George Gershwin and Dave Brubeck. A special highlight of the evening was the European premiere of a guitar trio written by Frankfurt composer and co-organizer Theodor Köhler.
