JULY 1 – 3, 2020

Visegrad Guitar Competition is a competition for the young guitarists. We want them to open the opportunity to show their musical level compared with the same age musicians from the wider world. We decided to open three solo age groups and two age groups for chamber music ensembles. Solo age groups are under 14 years, 15 to 19 years and 20 to 25 years. The ensembles are divided to two groups – under 19 years and over 20 years. The emphasis is placed not only on the solo playing but also on the chamber music.

The organizers of the competition are prominent guitarist and pedagogue Miriam Rodriguez Brüllová and outstanding luthier Petr Matoušek. Miriam Rodriguez Brüllová is the artistic director and jury chairman of the competition.

The competition will take place in city Modra.

The best competitors will be awarded with valuable prizes – concert and master guitars, luxury guitar cases and many other prizes.

The competition is supported by International Visegrad Fund.

As soon as the competition ends young musicians will have the opportunity to take part in the master classes to be held the following week under the leadership of leading pedagogues in a beautiful surroundings near Bratislava (http://musicmasterclass.sk/).
