The anniversary edition of The “Guitar Evenings” International Festival, a project of the Kitharalogos Cultural Association, will take place this year in Bucharest, Sibiu and Brasov and comprises recitals and concerts with orchestra, with the participation of some of the most important guitarists of the world, together with Romanian musicians. The festival is gaining momentum through collaborations with the Sibiu State Philharmonic Orchestra, where the Argentinean guitarist Pablo Márquez will play the world premiere of the „Concerto for guitar, string orchestra and 2 percussionists, op. 174”, entitled “Aluvión”, by Dan Dediu, and also with the Romanian Radio Chamber Orchestra, in a concert by Bandini-Chiacchiaretta Duo (guitar-bandoneon), who will dedicate a special evening to the music of Astor Piazzolla, a celebration of 100 years since his birth. Three solo recitals in Bucharest and Brasov by the above mentioned musicians, who will be joined by one of the most talented and appreciated young guitarists of the moment, the Italian Andrea de Vitis, two duo concerts by Romanian musicians (Duo Kitharsis and Duo Soare-Bănescu), “Kitharalogos Scholarship” Gala, dedicated to the young guitarists and the winners of the online contest, 5 world premieres, masterclasses – these are the events that we hope, in these difficult times, will bring joy to the souls of the spectators who have been watching this project since its first edition, which has become a cultural landmark within the Romanian guitaristic and musical scene.
