Dimitris Soukaras Young Musicians on Sunday

DimitrisSoukaras

Overview

The young soloist Dimitris Soukaras combines in his programme the old with the contemporary, melancholy with brilliance, contemplative expressiveness with virtuosity. His selections compose a musical landscape rich in narratives, alternating between three different versions of the guitar: the romantic, for the lute transcriptions of works by Dowland and Bach; the classical, for the works of Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Asencio; and the electric, for Leo Brower. With fine studies at the Royal Academy of London and years of apprenticeship alongside great teachers, the award-winning guitarist and composer combines the sweeping vigour of his age with a deep knowledge of an instrument that belongs to more musical worlds and always excites the imagination for new creations, such as Brower’s work “The Oracle Circle”.
