Classical Guitar Festival & Competition
Roland Dyens 2014
Welcome to the fifth Calcutta International Classical Guitar Festival & Competition honouring Roland Dyens 2014!
With each successful year, the Festival becomes bigger and better. The Festival has evolved a lot ever since its inception in 2010. This year will be a more participant driven Festival, where participants will get the opportunity of a lifetime to
watch performances of Maestros in the likes of Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, Marcin Dylla, Roland Dyens, Cavatina Duo, Johannes Moller, Eugenia Moliner and Denis Azabagic. David Russell had to pull out of the Festival due to severe wrist injury.
Never before has India seen such great artists in one Festival
together. A spectacular celebration of music and learning and high quality competition is what we expect this year’s Festival to be. It will be an intense 5 days of 5 Public Masterclasses, 9 Concerts, more than 200 scheduled Master classes and high
end competition with $13,000 worth prize money. This Festival promises to be a bonanza for both the artists and participants.
This festival is dedicated to the living legend Roland Dyens - composer, guitarist, improviser par excellence
Grammy Award winners Los Angeles Guitar Quartet comes to Calcutta for the first time.
