"Guitar. From Classics to Rock” is the only guitar festival in Moscow, which is distinguished by stylistic contrasts and genre diversity. The classical guitar and bass guitar solos, electric guitar in jazz and Russian seven-string guitar - for the first time on one stage and in one project! Thanks to this unusual combination, the fans of rock music will discover Marin Marais, and classical music lovers will get a great opportunity to appreciate electric guitar, a serious music instrument with the richest possibilities. And it is wonderful!” – Eugene Finkelstein, the art director of the festival, emphasized.
The brightest virtuoso guitarists awarded the highest awards at contests and festivals will once again present the widest range of compositions to the public, from masterpieces of classical music to modern crossover and jazz-rock.
