Gitarrenfestival Münster: International & Eclectic

img  Tobias
While the program of the Internationales Gitarrenfestival has a plethora of highlights on offer, there’s a couple of gigs we can especially recommend: Fans of pure Classical Guitar excursions should enjoy the double bill of Jens Wagner and Robert Aussel, whose joint repertoire for their concert on October 26th ranges from Cuban maestro Leo Brouwer to Jazzrock legend John McLaughlin. The new trio of Erhard Hirt (Guitar), Martin Theurer (Piano) and Paul Lovens (Drums) is set to explore the territory of free Improvisation. The Brazilian Guitar Quartet will dive into daring arrangements of Baroque pieces by Bach as well as a blend of more contemporary composers. Meanwhile, the Gitarrenfestival Münster hasn’t forgotten to thank Hans Werner Henze for his dedication to the Guitar: “There’s not a single seminal composer, who has contributed to the its repertoire as much as him”, the organisors claim.

The faculty of Münster’s School of Music, last but not least, will dish up a special treat on November 6th, when father and son of the “Indian Slide Guitar” Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and Salil V. Bhatt will take the stage for a joint session.
