Montenegrin Guitar Duo

Friday, February 16, 2018, 8:00 P.M. - Sundin Hall

Montenegrin Duo

The Montenegrin Guitar Duo is frequently invited to eminent international events (e.g. Festival Internacional de Musica y Danza de Granada, Kotor Art Festival, Koblenz Guitar Festival, A Tempo music festival, Guitar Foundation of America International Guitar Convention, Shenyang International Guitar Festival, Daejeon International Guitar Festival), for recitals and concerts with orchestras, as well as for masterclasses, lectures on transcribing Bach's music and adjudicating competitions. The duos' performances have been highly acclaimed by both audience and critics who praise their historically informed performances of J. S. Bach's English Suites in a new, fresh approach on two guitars.

Their repertoire includes the transcriptions of ancient music and original compositions dating from the 19th, 20th and 21th century, with a special emphasis on the contemporary music originally written for two guitars, as well as improvisation. MGD's ultimate goal is to broaden the guitar repertoire and further integrate guitar with other instruments.

Their debut CD with works by Domeniconi, Piazzolla and Bogdanovic was published in 2013 by the Montenegrin Music Centre. The first of two volumes of Bach's English Suites, a world premiere of this unique project, transcribed by the duo, was published in 2015 for Naxos Records and was praised by audience and music critics alike. English Suites Vol. 2 was recorded in October 2016 and will be released in 2017.

Goran Krivokapić is one of the leading musicians of the international guitar scene. A first prize winner at nineteen prestigious international competitions, his focus lies on the expansion and developing of guitar repertoire. He has performed all over Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and Russia, appearing at major halls as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Lubkowitz Palace in Vienna and Auditorio Conde Duque in Madrid.

Danijel Cerović is lecturing guitar and chamber music at the Music Academy in Cetinje (University of Montenegro). A versatile solo and chamber musician, he is also a member of the artistic board of the Montenegrin Music Centre and the Montenegrin Symphony Orchestra. He participates actively in the organisation of numerous international music events. He is the founder of the Niksic Guitar Festival and competition.

The Four Aces Guitar Quartet

Saturday, March 17, 2018, 8:00 pm— Sundin Hall

The Four Aces

Eight years after the debut of the Four Aces Guitar Quartet, these four well-dressed hot shots have outgrown their Flemish roots. Their second CD, Odyssee was a big success at home and in China and their newest album, For Aces, includes compositions written especially for them.

The quartet was born in the summer of 2008 during the International Guitar Symposium in Iserlohn, where the members first met. Their first concert was part of a final project at the conservatory of Antwerp. The audience and the jury were immediately impressed with the virtuosity and musical colors the four presented.

The Four Aces Guitar Quartet has played concerts in major halls in Belgium. Abroad they performed in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Slovenia, Italy, Georgia and China. The quartet also appeared in live broadcasting shows on the Dutch station Radio 4, on the Belgian TV channel Canvas and on Belgian classical radio Klara.

In 2013 the Four Aces Guitar Quartet returned to Iserlohn to give master classes during the Guitar Symposium. That same year they won Supernova, a Belgian chamber music competition that is supported by the national radio and TV channel, as well as the Flemish government and cultural partners. As a quartet Bart, Inti, Menno and Stein continue looking for perfection by taking master classes with some of the most famous guitarists in the world.

Four Aces Guitar Quartet enjoys concerts that combine classical music with traditional folk and pop music. The composers with whom the quartet collaborated include Clarice Assad, Adam Clarke, Nuccio D'Angelo, Nejc Kuhar, Patrick Roux, Harry Sacksioni, Alain Selhorst and Johannes Möller.
