Altered Worlds – Guitarist Aaron-Larget Caplan In Concert

January 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Acclaimed guitarist and composer Aaron Larget-Caplan returns to Salem State University for a special one-night-only concert.

The concert begins with Larget-Caplan’s arrangement of J.S. Bach’s Prelude in C Major, BWV 846 partnered with Vineet Shende’s (Bowdoin College) Carnatic Prelude N. 1, After J.S. Bach, a re-imagining of the prior as if Bach were from South India. The monumental Legend of Hagoromo by Keigo Fujii explores mystical transformation through the 13th century myth, followed by John Cage’s serene In A Landscape, arranged by Larget-Caplan.

The evening concludes with the theatrical performance and US premiere of Heretic, a micro-opera for guitarist by Richard Cameron-Wolfe. Inspired by Arthur Machen’s haunting 1907 novel The Hill of Dreams, this realization is a collaboration with Salem State University theatre faculty Jerry Johnson and Aaron Larget-Caplan.

Born Arthur Llewelyn Jones in 1863, Arthur Machen became one of the most influential writers of his generation. He drew on the dark landscapes of his childhood in Wales, together with his adult life in bohemian fin-de-siécle London, to create magical and disturbing tales. His admirers include Stephen King, and H. P. Lovecraft, who described him as one of the four ‘modern masters of the horror story’.
