Trio Ghidorah

Dances and Fantasies

Sunday, October 16th @ 2:00 PM

Join classical guitar ensemble Trio Ghidorah as they present a collection of their own musical arrangements alongside works composed for three guitars. Dance is a central theme of their program, with propulsive Brazilian baiões, a stilted yet fiery tango by Stravinsky, and a mercurial minuet by Mozart. The concept of fantasy is evoked by the imaginative and meditative music of John Dowland, Egberto Gismonti, and Philip Glass. 

Trio Ghidorah is a classical guitar trio formed by Ken Luk, Bernardo Marcondes, and Erik Gibelyou. The three musicians banded together while pursuing their doctoral degrees at the Eastman School of Music. The trio creates arrangements of music not originally written for guitar, including works by Stravinsky, Mozart, and Philip Glass.

Trio Ghidorah released their debut album, Dances and Fantasies, in March 2021. The recording includes the group’s arrangements alongside works composed for three guitars by Paulo Bellinati, Stephen Dodgson, and Annette Kruisbrink. The album’s release was celebrated in Rochester, New York with a concert at Bop Shop Records and an article in City Newspaper. Selections from the album have been played on the public radio program The Intimate Guitar and on WXXI Classical in Rochester.  

The trio has performed frequently in the Rochester area and beyond, including concerts at Alfred University, Bloomsburg University, SUNY-Geneseo, the George Eastman Museum, and The Little Theatre. Their concert programs include music from the classical canon, contemporary works, and Latin American music.
