Gitarrissima on Tour


A mellifluous stroll through Spain, Italy, and the Donau Monarchy - from the habanera to the waltz - with the award-winning ensemble of young women guitarists from Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

A special appearance at SheyksBar!

Since 2002 these young female guitarists from Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic have been enchanting a steadily growing international audience with their sensitive musical interplay and virtuous performances.

The quartet comprises an unusual line-up, which includes an octave guitar (Maire Cendelínová), two concert guitars (Réka Mihalovics and Eva Langoecker), and an acoustic bass guitar (Andrea Wild), who perform their own original arrangements. The ensemble breaks new ground in the genre of classical guitar music. They offer a refreshingly original sound that introduces a fresh dimension to popular classical works along with less well known compositions. The work is characterized by a wealth of musical color and an orchestral density that is rarely heard.

The arrangements combine cleverly balanced interpretations with an airy transparency and make ingenious use of a great range of playing techniques, including percussive effects.

Gitarrissima were among the prize winners at the international guitar contest "Open Strings 2002" in Osnabruek (Germany) and received the first prize in the chamber music competition of the "International guitar festival in Gorizia 2011" (Italy). They have performed in Germany, Italy, England, Luxemburg, Croatia, Austria, Hungary, Taiwan, Mexico, Estonia, and Turkey, and have appeared in various TV productions.
