Stars of the Guitar CD is now available through www.bpo.org! The two CD set on the BPO’s Beau Fleuve label presents seven of the most important and most beloved concertos written for the guitar, in live performances of the finalists in the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition.

As JoAnn says in the liner notes: “The guitar was my first love, the enchanted vessel that transported a seven year old into a lifelong musical journey. So the creation of a competition for classical guitarists- featuring the greatest concertos written for the instrument- was a perfect melding of my Buffalo Philharmonic orchestral world with the disarmingly intimate voice of the classical guitar. Since 2004 extremely gifted guitarists have come to Buffalo from around the world (often on their first visit to the United States) to perform as artists in solo recital and in the final competition with the Philharmonic. Our orchestra has most probably played more concertos with guitarists than any other ensemble, and we are very proud of the extraordinary level of excellence of our guest soloists, and the active support of our community, who has embraced the competition with tremendous enthusiasm.”

Very happy to be in the finals of Certamen Internacional de Guitarra Clasica Andres Segovia which is dedicated to Leo Brouwer this edition in his pleasantly surprising presence. It is a unique motivation to get closer to his music - most notably his Concerto Elegiaco which bedazzles by it's many facets. (and concerto de Toronto which I also learned half way and "la espiral eterna" that has been a silent dream for me to play)
Among those many facets that it consists of, stands it's haunting dramaticism.
AND I LIVE FOR THE DRAMA.
This is one of the few, if not the only famous guitar concerto that has a recapitulation - both first and second movement re-emerge at the end of the third, gathering energy from the past for a quintessential eruption.
It may or may not be a bit premature to express joy as tomorrow will definitely be A DAY, but I am already very happy about the opportunity that has been provided by Certamen Internacional de Guitarra Clasica Andres Segovia and the jury of the competition. Congratulations to the finalists Julia Trintschuk and Mircea Stefan Gogoncea and to all the competitors.
