Classical Guitar Treasures
Wednesday, August 2, 2023
1-2pm (PT), 2-3pm (MT), 3-4pm (CT), 4-5pm (ET)
Join us for the Alliance concert debut of classical guitarist Liz Hogg, who presents and performs a beautiful program of musical treasures.
The 10 Etudes for Guitar by Giulio Regondi represent the pinnacle of technical achievement for 19th-century guitar performance. Dense textures, large stretches, fast scales and arpeggios, and obscure modulations are used in combinations that were unrivaled among his contemporaries. Etude #5 is a particularly fun piece.
Recognized as Paraguayan composer Barrios Mangoré’s masterpiece, the 3-movement work La Catedral (“The Cathedral”), dating from 1921, uses both the ambient sound of the cathedral bells and the internal sound of an organist playing Bach as points of inspiration.
The 6-movement, Suite in G Minor was transcribed for lute by composer Johann Sebastian Bach between the spring of 1727 and the winter of 1731 from his own Cello Suite No. 5.
Heitor Villa-Lobos‘s Étude No. 3, part of his Twelve Études for Guitar, was first published by Max Eschig, Paris, in 1953. The piece, strongly influenced by the didactic works of earlier composers for the guitar.

About Liz Hogg
Liz Hogg is a guitarist and composer from Brooklyn, NY. Hogg has been described as possessing “energy, expressive dynamics and phrasing” (American Record Guide), “fantastic work” (Classical Guitar Magazine) and “playing with a more distinctive and original approach that includes quickly-strummed chords, chiming arpeggios, and rapid-fire picking” (Geoff Cabin). Her playing has been further characterized as “strong, precise, and powerful” (Bushwick Music Daily), “radiating in its own light” (New Noise Magazine), carrying “élan and fine precision” (Fanfare), and “displaying a confrontational spectrum of emotions” (Music & Riots). She runs Sonder School of Music in Elmhurst, NY as well as serves as guitar faculty in the remote division of Jubilee University, in addition to her private studio.
As both a classical guitarist and performer of her original music, Hogg has toured twelve countries playing numerous festivals and concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Brookfield Place, as well as Portugal’s Casa da Música and Mexico’s Tlaqná Concert Hall. She has won awards including the Mannes School of Music Dean’s Award, the Maurice Kagan Memorial Scholarship Award for Excellence in an Orchestral Instrument (first guitarist recipient), and was a Fulbright-García Robles Scholarship semi-finalist. Hogg was also the first American to win a fellowship for performance and study at the Lanciano International Guitar Festival in Italy and has received grants from Chamber Music America, the Peter M. Gross fund and Queens College.
Hogg has recorded eleven full-length albums, seven eps, and five singles, self-released and released by labels Mouca, Albany, Acuarela, Marsyas and Don Giovanni. Her recordings and performances have garnered reviews from The New York Times, NME, Big Takeover and MTV. Beyond her solo music, Hogg plays in the band Safer, as well as Esenca Duo and various groups throughout NYC.
