Post by StanleyAlexandrowicz » Mon Dec 03, 2018 3:17 am

Nice to be here fellow guitarists! I'll just attach my short biography here:

PERFORMER BIOGRAPHY
Classical Guitarist Stanley Alexandrowicz is internationally renowned for his thrilling virtuosity, poetic interpretations, and refined musicality. In addition to his command of the instrument’s standard repertoire, he has premiered and commissioned over 100 works by composers fro Europe, Asia, the United States, Cuba, and Latin America.

A scholar and specialist in the field of 19th Century music, he often features unknown compositions by the Romantic guitar composer-virtuosi, playing on period instruments and revitalizing works which have lain dormant (often in manuscript form) for over a century. He has given lecture-recitals internationally on both Romantic and Contemporary Music, including the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton – USA), the International Guitar Research Centre (University of Surrey – UK), the Baltimore Museum of Art (USA), and, the Harp-Guitar Foundation of America.

In addition to his work as an international soloist, he collaborates regularly in chamber music performances with some of the world’s leading musicians ― including internationally renowned soprano Dominika Zamara ― bringing together the worlds of opera, lieder, song, and Contemporary music in realizations of unmatched sonic beauty and deep musical intelligence. Their duo debut CD “Ivan Padovec: Music for Guitar and Soprano” was issued on SHEVA Collection Recordings Italy, 2015.

Performance highlights during recent concert seasons include London, Rome, New York, Venice, Wroclaw, Washington D.C., Padova, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Princeton, etc. In November 2018, he performed at the Vatican by special invitation, in a recital devoted to his Holiness John Paul II (with duo-partner Dominika Zamara).
