Event Program (PDF)

Albus/Ater II is the second incarnation of a concept program for solo classical guitar (Albus Ater I appeared in May 2006). The pieces are loosely grouped around not just the simple definition of these words (Latin: white/black), but the myriad of other concepts to which they may refer. Two newly composed pieces are featured on the program:  Matthew Burtner’s Citlatepetl Vertex (based on Colin’s December 2010 ascent of the highest volcano in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba); and Christopher Adler’s Aeneas in the Underworld, Act I: The Caves of Cumae, a setting of the sixth book of Virgil’s Aeneid for guitar and narrator. Other works include Carmina obscura : A garland of 14th & 15th century polyphony  (arrangements by McAllister, Adler and Bryan Christian), Miguel Ordóñez’s 21 Grupos, and the Decameron Negro of Leo Brouwer.
