With many recitalists gravitating toward programs whose main purpose seems to be to excite the listener, it is refreshing to find one like the Brazilian guitarist Edelton Gloeden, who, for his North American debut on Thursday at the 92d Street Y, fashioned an appealing program out of selections more notable for their musical interest than their flashiness, and played as if the audience weren't even there.

For Sor, it was a question of translating the essence of the musical thought conceived in an operatic way and presenting it under a sonorous concept of an emerging, solo instrument as had been the case of the guitar in the late 18th century and in the first decades of the 19th century. From the instrumental perspective, therefore, elements such as texture, style of accompaniment and the voice leading concept, to name but a few, have undergone conceptual changes, resulting almost in a new composition and ev View on embap.
