La Guitarra - 2nd International Guitar Festival
With THE POWER OF MUSIC, LA GUITARRA ERL 2021 makes a sound statement for the power of music and culture. While last year's international guitar festival in the Festspielhaus Erl was based entirely on the top-class potential of local musicians and artists due to COVID-19, in 2021 international flair is to unfold once again.
The third international guitar festival La Guitarra Erl presents a kaleidoscope of sound colors and styles. World-renowned musicians from the genres of classical music, jazz, flamenco and world will carry you away with the highest virtuosity and art into unique sound worlds full of passion and emotion.
At the Festspielhaus Erl, JULIA MALISCHNIG and the outstanding EUROPEAN GUITAR QUARTET will open with Una Noche de 5 Guitarras on August 12. With virtuosic and contemporary embraces of concert music, world music and jazz, Carinthian exceptional guitarist Julia Malischnig and world-renowned guitarists Zoran Dukić, Pavel Steidl, Thomas Fellow and Reentko literally turn the world of classical music upside down.
August 13 offers an extraordinary double concert where guitar and piano meet. TRIO ELOGIO, one of the most energetic guitar ensembles on the international classical music scene today, and the brilliant and distinctive Australian pianist legend DAVID HELFGOTT will fascinate in a unique Noche Fascinante.
Clear the stage on August 14 for LA GUITARRA NEXT GENERATION IN CONCERT. Prizewinners of the guitar competition Prima La Musica and young participants of the talent promotion of the Tyrolean State Conservatory will present their musical skills in an impulse concert at the Festspielhaus.
