Master Class: Stephane Wrembel – Django Reinhardt: The Art of Guitar

6:30 PM
All Ages
Masks are welcome. The café and bar will not be open at this event. Thank you!

Django Reinhardt was one of the greatest masters of guitar the world has ever seen. With an utterly unique and fantastical style, his playing fused the influences of Bach, Debussy, Gypsy folk music, and jazz. His command of harmony, rhythm, and technique, along with his sense of melody and limitless virtuosity, remain unmatched. Behind this beauty lies a mechanism that renowned Gypsy jazz guitarist Stephane Wrembel will unveil for you: the mechanism of perfect form, where Apollo and Dionysus become one.

In this Master Class, The Art of Guitar, Wrembel will be demonstrating the ins-and-outs of Reinhardt’s guitar style; a study of his technique, harmonic concepts, and his specific rhythms and melody shaping. Wrembel teaches guitar using the Reinhardt technique, which includes building an efficient and rational practice routine, improvisation, rhythm, Renaissance counterpoint, and harmony. Through this unique class, Wrembel will make you feel the profound depth of Reinhardt’s artistry and legacy.
