Clas­si­cal gui­tarist Ja­son Vieaux ap­pears in a solo recital hosted by the Santa Fe Sym­phony at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 7 p.m. on Thurs­day, Feb. 16. His wide-rang­ing pro­gram in­cludes work orig­i­nally con­ceived for gui­tar by Mauro Gi­u­liani (his Grand Over­ture) and Hans Werner Henze (three “Ten­tos” from his 1958 Kam­mer­musik); a tran­scrip­tion of Bach’s E-mi­nor Suite (BWV 996) for the lute-harp­si­chord (a mys­te­ri­ous hy­brid that in­spired ex­per­i­men­ta­tion among Ger­man in­stru­ment builders of Bach’s time, though not a sin­gle ex­am­ple sur­vives); and ar­range­ments of pieces by Isaac Al­béniz, Pat Metheny, and An­tônio Car­los Jobím, among oth­ers. Tick­ets ($22-$80) can be had from the Sym­phony di­rectly (www.santafesym­phony.org; 505-983-1414) or by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org. Vieaux re­turns to the Len­sic’s stage on Sun­day, Feb. 19, at 4 p.m. as the soloist in Ro­drigo’s

with Guillermo Figueroa leading the orchestra. Also on that con­cert (same ticket prices and sources) are Schu­bert’s Sym­phony and Dvorˇ ák’s Sym­phony No. 3. — James M. Keller Deven­dra Ban­hart makes muted, strange mu­sic that repli­cates the anx­ious stage of sleep between dream­ing and wak­ing, when you’re not sure if the voices you hear are real or in your head. His out­put — de­scribed by crit­ics as “win­some,” “hushed,” and “low-stakes” — is per­fect for a can­dlelit din­ner, the sound­track to an in­de­pen­dent film, or in­duc­ing a trance-like state in lis­ten­ers. His 2002 de­but al­bum has one of the long­est ti­tles in re­cent mem­ory, Oh Me Oh My … The Way the Day Goes By the Sun Is Set­ting Dogs Are Dream­ing Lovesongs of the Christ­mas Spirit; sub­se­quent al­bums in­clude Re­joic­ing in the Hands (2004), Smokey Rolls Down Thun­der Canyon (2007), and What Will We Be (2009). Now on tour for his new­est re­lease, Ape in Pink Mar­ble (None­such, 2016), Ban­hart plays at Meow Wolf (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle, 505-395-6369) at 7 p.m. on Mon­day, Feb. 13. Tick­ets to the 21-and-over show are $25 in ad­vance, avail­able at www.me­ow­wolf.com, $30 at the door. — Jen­nifer Levin
