Sei Chitarre Sole (Six Guitars Alone): Guitar Concert Series
What is a Guitar?
Everyone knows what one is, but few know of it's remarkable ability to
transcend musical and stylistic boundaries.
Of course, there are different kinds and styles of guitar: Classical,
Acoustic, Electric, but the stylistic breadth of the guitar transcends
classifications. One can, for example, use a Classical nylon string
guitar to play many kinds of music besides 'Classical' music. Or one can
use specially treated guitars (alligator clips, forks and knives, etc.) to
play the 'Blues'.
This series of concerts hosts two different Guitar players from diverging
backgrounds. In each evenings performance, each guitarist will play one
40 to 50 minutes set. Each concert will present audiences with two
radically different guitar worlds. The likelihood of encountering a style
that is exotic and unfamiliar is very high.
One of the chief goals of the festival is to acquaint people with the
amount of stylistic diversity that exists in the Guitar world.The hope of
the performances is to expand the musical vocabulary of the listener: to
leave them with a new appreciation for new and unusual Guitaristic
techniques; to celebrate the Guitar!
The concerts will be held in Desenzano del Garda (south Garda Lake,
Verona and Brescia), in the ancient 14th Century Closter of Santa Maria de
