3. International Guitar Festival Münster – VISHWA MOHAN BHATT & SALIL BHATT

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on October 22, 2008

pro Gitarre is a society that features music around the guitar. Diverse artistical and pedagogical events aim at a wide audience. Besides that world-famous guitar soloists are presented by pro Gitarre.
Most likely no other instrument gained so much popularity as the guitar thanks to the 60ies and 70ies rock and pop music. But beyond that there is a great variety of styles and traditions that give the guitar an important role in music. Presenting that variety is one of pro Gitarre’s main purposes.

3. International Guitar Festival Münster

22. Oktober – 9. November
concerts in Münster, Ahlen, Oelde, Rheine und Stadtlohn

From 22 October to 9 November the great variety and versatility of the guitar will resonate in Münster: this instrument’s complete range of historical and contemporary styles, from early music to new music, from jazz to folk, will be represented. A guitar tour of twenty concerts will take us from Europe to South America and India; and since the featured instrument will have the opportunity to show us all its many sides, from solo interpretation to concerted virtuosity, it is certain: the extensive spectrum covered at the Third International Guitar Festival in Münster will now be even more extensive!
Reinbert Evers and the St. Christopher Orchestra will open the festival on October 22th with the premiere of three new compositions. The leading American lutenist Hopkinson Smith will offer a contrast with his fascinating insights into the historical performance style of plucked instruments. Two international ensembles, the Prague Guitar Quartet and the Brazilian Guitar Quartet, will also perform as guests in Münster.

The Joscho Stephan Quartet will dedicate itself to the jazz guitar, and Vishwa Mohan Bhatt will present the Indian slide guitar.

An exhibition of guitars and printed music as well as master classes led by Robert Aussel, Hopkinson Smith, and Jürgen Ruck will round out the festival offerings.
