“Classical Guitar Concert, by Jonathan Prag, ...makes for a nice complement to some of the other Toronto Fringe offerings. Prag plays seven pieces, ranging from Bach to Cuban music to Irish ditties... Prag provides program notes and a little between-song banter to help inform the audience of what they’re about to hear...the arrangements sounded fresh and soothing. Bach on guitar – who knew ?

Two pieces in particular stood out for me. “Usher Waltz” by Nikita Koshkin. Remember that creepy story that you had to read in school, The Fall of the House of Usher?
