Montenegrin Guitar Duo to open inaugural European Guitar Concerto Competition and Festival

The European Guitar Concerto Competition & Festival will be the biggest classical guitar event in the Netherlands, held for the first time in Groningen from January 29th until February 4th, 2018. The festival is an initiative of the Dutch Guitar Foundation, which strives to promote classical guitar throughout the country.

In addition to giving the festival’s opening concert, Goran and Danijel will serve on the competition jury and run masterclasses.

The festival organisers say:

Following recent closures of numerous classical guitar societies and lack of integration into the classical music mainstream, the mission of Dutch Guitar Foundation is to reawaken interest in classical guitar and in the art of classical guitar playing. In order to do this we are combining the guitar with the most beloved and iconic tradition of classical music – the orchestra! We seek to explore the delicate relationship of guitar and orchestra through the competition and festival and bring a fresh concert experience to the audience.
