Izhar Elias - Winner Dutch Music Prize 2011 - Edesche Guitar Recitals

Some of the program:

Villa Lobos - Etudes nr. 7

"The guitar is such a sensitive instrument"
Izhar is clear about what makes the guitar so special for him: "It's such a sensitive instrument, the sound touched me instantly! I also find the fact that the guitar is found in many other musical cultures incredibly interesting; the instrument is flexible in all kinds of styles. Just like the piano, you can play the melody and the accompaniment at the same time, but it's also a very rhythmic instrument"
(Read the interview with Izhar Elias.)

Three special guitarsNot

with one, but with three guitars Izhar Elias appears on stage. With the baroque, the romantic and the modern guitar he brings music from four centuries of guitar history to life

When you think about the guitar, all kinds of associations are immediately added: from exotic holidays to the first guitar chords of your neighbour's boy. Over the centuries the guitar has been a link between classical and pop, a link between elite and people. No other instrument is represented in so many different styles. In this guitar recital, Izhar Elias plays a few masterpieces from the history of the classical guitar. What makes this programme extra special is the introduction to three special guitars: the baroque guitar, the romantic guitar and the modern classical guitar.
