European tour

Post by MartenFalk » Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:45 pm

If you are interested in hearing some music for Russian Guitar...
European tour of February 2019:
19 February at 19.00: Royal conservatory of music in Copenhagen
21 February 20.00: Berlin; Werkstatt/Galerie Michael Batell (Mariannenplatz 22)
25 February 19.00: Classic Art Belgrade
27 February 19.00: Viola Centrum, Presov, Slovakia
28 February 18.00: Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice, Poland.
I will be playing music for Russian seven string guitar from 1798-2019. I will be doing a world premiere of Lars Carlsson's new piece "Moments during the moments" for guitar and percussion with the composer himself as special guest. In Slovakia I will also be playing the fantastic work Peregrinations by Matthew Peterson (this one is for six strings though)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, you are one of the most interesting players out there. I wish you all the best for your (insane) tour! And if there is any justice in the world, every concert will be a sell out. Best wishes! Rob

Marten is a fine player and highly recommended. We were fortunate to present his concerts at Reno and Tahoe a few years ago.

Thank you folks! Your comments make me happy!
Of course I would love to come to Scotland (I am playing in England in early June so if there is an opportunity, I can easily come to Scotland as well). I love the Scottish landscape, whisky, and beautiful language; and there are one or two wonderful guitarists I'd like to meet in person...

In Aberdeen (where I am from) there is an enthusiastic guitar society. Do give us advance warning if you are thinking of coming up to Scotland & I'll ask the society if they might be interested in hosting you.
We have more than one language in fact - the Scots dialect I can't help you much with but I can teach you a bit of Scots Gaelic if you come here!

one or two guitarists in Scotland? You must mean David Russell and Paul Galbraith. I hate break it to you, but they've moved away...
