Local group, Trio Seven, has been booked to play in the Classical Guitar Series Concert at 8 p.m. Friday, April 4, at the Davis Arts Center, 1919 F St. The group is filling in for originally scheduled artist, Arina Burcéva.
In their fourth year performing throughout Northern California, Trio Seven — Matthew Grasso, Harry Stoddard and Matthew Foley — continues to innovate with new transcriptions and original works.

Trio Seven will perform its all-new transcription of Mussorgsky’s beloved piano work, “Pictures at an Exhibition” (1874). In it Mussorgsky imagines a posthumous exhibition of his friend, artist Victor Hartmann, who died suddenly of an aneurysm at the age of 39. It is composed of 10 pictures, representing paintings, sketches and architectural concepts by Hartmann, and four promenades, representing Mussorgsky’s moods as he strolls through the exhibit.
This transcription for three extended seven-string guitars seeks to combine something of the fullness and power of the piano with the intimacy and raucous of the guitar. The concert program also includes popular movie themes and works by Debussy, Bach, Brahms, Gismonti, Grasso, Rachmaninov and selections of De Falla’s “El Amor Brujo.”

All series program concerts are family friendly. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets are available at the door before concerts beginning at 7:30 p.m., or in advance online at http://www.davisartscenter.org/events/event/arina-burceva/.
