Wroclaw Giutar Festiwal
 
Wroclaw Giutar Festiwal
Wroclaw, Poland
Late September
Description
Wroclaw Guitar Festival has already had sixteen editions. Throughout the years it has invariably maintained the status of a unique event in Poland and in Europe, and it boasts a rich tradition and a high level of artistic performance. It is referred to as a guitar feast, as its atmosphere attracts to Wroclaw guitarists and guitar music fans from all over the world. The central idea of the festival is presenting various musical styles connected more or less with the guitar. Among them there is obviously classical music, flamenco (often accompanied by singing and dancing), jazz as well as Latino music, ethnic music and an endless fusion of sounds taken from various musical styles. This variety of repertoire proves that guitar music knows no stylistic boundaries. Every year the Festival hosts the biggest stars and authorities of the guitar world. During its sixteen editions there have performed such virtuosos as: David Pavlovits, Lazhar Cherouana, Peppino D’Agostino, Larry Coryell, Susana Prieto, Alexis Muzurakis, Eamon McGrath, Pedro Tagliani i Diknu Schneeberge. The guitarists have been accompanied by such outstanding musicians as: Yvonne Sanchez, Joshi Schneeberg and Ducks Can Grove band. The Festival is also involved in the promotion of our native young artists, very often giving them a chance to perform on stage with musicians of international renown. Among the Polish stars of the Festival there are such names as Marek Napiórkowski, Wojtek Pilichowski, Leszek Zaleski, Artura Lesicki, Krzysztofa Kiljanski, Magda Czwojda, Jaroslaw Dzien, Marcin Hilarowicz and Lukasz Adamczy. Wroclaw Guitar Festival does not entail only concerts but also master classes, instruments exhibitions, presentations of musical publishing houses, showing films these are events, whose high artistic value is guaranteed by Krzysztof Pelech, the originator, co-founder and artistic director of the Festival, who is also a distinguished Polish classical guitarist.
