After coming of age in the last edition, the Llobet Contest intends to carry out the nineteenth edition with the normal presence that has always characterized it. New experiences and vibrant emotions once again turn the stage into mastery, excellence and virtuosity in the noble art of the guitar.
This year we present to the contest excellent works that have left a personal mark to be performed by the interpreters with their own sound perspective and with the knowledge of their composers.
In the first phase of Qualifying we present “Leonesa”, a popular song so exquisitely harmonized by the illustrious guitarist Miquel Llobet, and “Catalanesca”, a characteristic dance of Catalonia written by the Catalan cellist Gaspar Cassadó, whom we celebrate the 125th Anniversary of his birth.
In the second Semifinal phase, the classifieds will interpret the freshness of the “Brazilian Dance” by the Argentine master Jorge Morel, together with the inspiring pictorial “Actor’s Mask” by the Russian composer Konstantin Vassiliev, a work awarded with the first prize of the 2021 Llobet Composition Contest.
The last and third Final phase, the finalists will sharpen their musical skills with one of the two works to choose from together with a string quartet, between the suggestive “Fantasia per chitarra e quartetto d’archi” by the Italian master composer and guitarist Eros Roselli or the hypnotic “Landscape” by Australian composer Robert Davidson.
As we repeat every year, we hope that this appointment of self-improvement transmits or promotes new artistic challenges.
