2nd International Guitar Festival “Homenaje”
Padova, 3rd – 11th September 2022




- Tuesday 6th, Barco Teatro (10 am)
The Italian guitar between the 1800s and 1900s.
Evolution, anecdotes, curiosities and contaminations with European culture

Lecturer Lorenzo Frignani, luther

The beginning of the nineteenth century, following the fall of the monarchies, was a period of great transformation for the guitar and its repertoire. A new social system conditioned the style and customs of the arts and music, along with its instruments, followed this transformation.
An uninterrupted path, which at the end of the 19th century, brings to the confirmation of the organology of that which we now call the "modern classical guitar”, a process that was fundamentally influenced by European culture.
Events, characters, curiosities and dynamics of this evolutionary process will be the core themes treated during the presentation.


- Wednesday 7th, Barco Teatro (10 am)
Improvisation and composition: ways of knowledge
Lecturers: Stephen Goss, Dušan Bogdanović

Two leading composers and guitarists share the stage to discuss creative processes and composing the guitar: the core of the talk will be improvisation, how this informs practice and can lead composers and interpreters to a deeper awareness.


- Saturday 10th, Barco Teatro (3 pm)
Miguel Llobet. Anew edition, a new Llobet
Lecturer Stefano Grondona

The important historical, critical and iconographic material accompanying the edition brings out a new image of Llobet as a key-figure in the history of the guitar, as well as an important exponent of Catalan Modernism.
This edition of Miguel Llobet's complete works is mainly based on primary sources (the Maestro’s autographed manuscripts) and contains a considerable number of previously unpublished works.
The edition is signed by Stefano Grondona, the interpreter who in recent times has contributed the most to increment interest in the figure of Llobet, starting with the recording of his complete works for guitar, both solo and ensemble, on six CDs.
