The International Festival 'Guitar Evenings', The Ninth Edition
The ninth edition of "Guitar Evenings," a project of the Kitharalogos Cultural Association, brings to Bucharest 18 artists from four different countries in a celebration of the instrument, which includes nine concerts, six masterclasses, a conference, and an online contest.
As it usually happens every year, three of the world's most famous guitarists, Pablo Márquez, Rafael Aguirre, and Rémi Jousselme, will perform in the beautiful Aula of the Central University Library "Carol I." Also, Romanian artists of high value will delight the public in Bucharest with recitals that will combine music, poetry, and visual arts.
From vintage instruments to contemporary music, from famous works to songs performed for the first time ever, the new edition of "Guitar Evenings" celebrates the diversity and versatility of an instrument with an unmistakable voice. The project is co-financed by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund. It welcomes talented young guitarists with 36 places available at the free masterclass courses, which are held at the National University of Music, two galas held at the Șuțu Palace and a unique online competition in Romania ("Bursa Kitharalogos") which will give prizes of over 2000 euros and a conference dedicated to all guitar lovers.
