Izhar Elias - guitar
Guiter through the centuries
In dit programma enkele topstukken uit de geschiedenis van de klassieke gitaar.
Izhar Elias laat drie bijzondere gitaren horen: de renaissance gitaar, de barokgitaar en de Spaanse klassieke gitaar. Iedere gitaar en stijl heeft weer zijn eigen verhaal. Zo speelde de Italiaanse barokgitarist Francesco Corbetta voor de Zonnekoning Lodewijk de XIV, en bracht Francesco Molino in de vroeg 19th eeuw de Italiaanse opera naar de Parijse salons.
Ook klinkt een nieuw werk van de in Nederland wonende componist Florian Magnus Maier. Na dit virtuoze stuk is er ruimte voor warmbloedige en temperamentvolle Spaanse klassiekers.

The poetic style and groundbreaking programming of Izhar Elias is founded on an extensive deepening of historical performance practice (Renaissance, Baroque and early 19th century), chamber music and contemporary music combined with multimedia. Izhar gave numerous concerts in Europe, Russia, South-East Asia, Australia and the US. He received the prestigious Dutch Music Prize, the highest state award that can be awarded to a musician working in classical music. Since September 2019, Izhar has been teaching at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
Izhar Elias has an impressive number of albums to his name. His thirteenth album was released in October 2020: 'Schubert's Guitars', together with guitarist Fernando Riscado Cordas, played on special guitars from Schubert's time. And in January 2021 his 14th album was released: Le Plaintif, with French baroque music by his ensemble Cordevento.
Our concerts are programmed by Marjolijn Sengers. Why did she choose this concert? Guitar is one of the most intimate instruments I know, but which, perhaps precisely because of that intimateness, are only programmed in recital form in dribs and drabs. Our stage is ideal for enjoying the most beautiful guitar music in close proximity. And with Izhar we have a guitarist who dares to open up to his audience.
