In the more than 20 entries we’ve made so far, we somehow failed to feature the guitar. We’ll correct this omission by presenting two wonderful guitarists, Ana Vidovic and Manuel Esteban. Ms. Vidovic was born in Croatia in 1980 and has already established herself as one of the youngest guitar virtuosos in the world. She performs internationally and has won a number of competitions. To listen to Ms. Vidovic play Albéniz (Asturias), Tárrega (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) and Sonatina Meridional by Ponce, click here.
The repertory of the Spanish guitarist Manuel Esteban is very broad, from the Renaissance to the music of the 20th century. He also actively collaborates with other musicians and has formed several ensembles. In this selection Mr. Esteban plays two Pasacalles, one by the 17th century German composer Esaias Reusner and by the Bach’s contemporary Silvius Leopold Weiss. He also plays Fernando Sor’s Etude.
