Concert in Luleå Chamber Music Society

29 Jan Concert in Luleå Chamber Music Society

It was a real treat to be invited back to the beautiful city of Luleå for another concert arranged by their chamber music society (lkmf.se). I took the audience on a journey led by the grand old masters of the guitar, picking pieces composed by some of the instruments foremost virtuosos of each era, starting with the earliest published lute music by de Milan and ending with Saudade no. 3 by Roland Dyens.

In this concert I was playing on two fine instruments by luthier Heikki Rousu. One standard 6-string guitar and one 11-string alto guitar.
