This year, we are glad to welcome Johan Fostier, the Eclisses Quatuor, Petra Polackova, Anabel Montesinos, Lovro Peretic and Rémi Jousselme.
For our extra concerts ("Concerts en + "), we will also welcome Cassie Martin, Jack Hancher, Marcell Nickmann, Özberk Sarigül, Bianka Szalaty, the MFA Duo and the IRIS Quatuor.
This year, for the first time, in partnership with Eurostring - a european platform that connects several international guitar competitions at European level, the Paris International Guitar Festival invited five young prize-winners: Ema Kapor, Jonas Egholm, Lovro Peretic, Zsombor Sidoo and Mateusz Kowalski.
They took advantage of their presence to follow master classes given by Marcin Dylla at the Conservatoire Paul Dukas in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. We would like to thank the Director of the Conservatoire and the Guitar Teacher, Benjamin Valette, for their warm welcome.
On Thursday 28 November, these young artists were also given the opportunity to introduce the classical guitar at the National Institute for Young Blind People in Paris, in cooperation with Boris Moine, teacher.
Then, on Saturday 30 November, Ema, Jonas, Lovro and Zsombor played at the "Concert en plus", at the Traversière Theater, in the context of the Paris International Guitar Festival.
Mateusz, as 1st prize winner of the 2019 Eurostring Competition, performed at the evening concert on Sunday 1 December.
Their attendance allowed us to discover young talented european guitarists, maybe not yet well known in France, but certainly with a brilliant future. We are delighted to have welcomed them.
Don't hesitate to follow them !
