“Aaron Larget-Caplan is a riveting artist”, writes the Washington Post, and the Boston Musical Intelligencer says he has “astounding technical proficiency and artistic delicacy”. Aaron Larget-Caplan is an international recording and touring guitarist, who connects with audiences with Bernstein-esque ease. Aaron has premiered over 80 compositions, many written for him, and Edition Peters and Stone Records publish his groundbreaking arrangements and recording of the music of John Cage. He has six critically acclaimed solo albums with a sixth coming in spring 2021. A multi-volume anthology of scores featuring works written for his New Lullaby Project is published by the American Composers Alliance beginning in 2021.
