An international touring artist from Colorado now based in Boston and on faculty at the University of Massachusetts Boston, Larget-Caplan recently returned from performing again in Russia, Germany and Italy. His performances have been hailed as stunning by Fanfare Magazine and the Boston Musical Intelligencer noted his astounding technical proficiency and artistic delicacy. The Polish publication Six Strings of the World says: "To write that [Larget-Caplan]; has something to boast about would be to say too little, the guitarist is not afraid of any tempoA delicious and poetic interpretation

Aaron is the fist American and first guitarist featured on the expanding classical label based in the UK, Stone Records. The CD is a highlight of our over 80 releases, says founder Mark Stone.

Larget-Caplans latest CD, The Legend of Hagoromo, is a musical fusion built on a Japanese theme with American composers writing in an Eastern aesthetic and Japanese composers writing in a Western. It includes works by George Gershwin and Harold Arlen, as well as New Lullabies commissioned by Larget-Caplan for his New Lullaby Project by Ken Ueno and Kota Nakamura. The CD been hailed as an eclectic and endlessly rewarding release by Classical Guitar. New arrangements of J.S. Bach and John Cage keyboard works compliment the program, as well as a fascinating arrangement by Japanese virtuoso Yamashita of two movements of the famed Pictures in an Exhibition, by Modest Mussorgsky, and an audience favorite, the Japanese tour-de-force, Legend of Hagoromo.

Keigo Fujiis Legend of Hagoromo is based on a Japanese legend about a fisherman who falls in love with a heavenly maiden who can fly when she wears her feathered kimono (Hagoromo). He steals it, and drama ensues. The music is Eastern in a mode from Okinawa, Japan, but the composer, studied in the West and loved rock guitar. The guitarist uses unusual techniques, including brushing, bending, scratching to highlight the pieces intense rhythmic shaping and dramatic story. The American Record Guide described Aarons performance of the 20-minute masterpiece as "an emotional and technical tour de force."

A CD signing will take place following the concert.
The program will be performed in Boston on 12/3 and at the Savage Classical Guitar Gallery on Long Island (12/10).
