Andrew York played at Schroeder Hall on the Sonoma State University campus a couple of weeks ago. He played many of the pieces mentioned in this thread, and two Bach cello suite preludes he had transcribed. "Equations of Beauty" was magnificent. It's generally not in my DNA to enjoy a 26 minute guitar piece, but this is an incredible work. "Home" was his encore. I'm sure I'm not the only one who downloaded it the next day!
I found him to be an incredibly engaging performer. I found his compositions fascinating, transfixing, hypnotic, I could go on and on. I also really enjoyed his stories about the pieces, and the self-effacing manner in which he told them. He had the audience in the palm of his hand. He could have played "Spanish Romance" and we would have gone nuts!
