IGF YAP aims to help young guitarists in the critical phase between the final stages of music education and the concert platform. Come and hear the future stars of the guitar!

Emanuele Addis, born in 1996 in Sassari, Italy, is currently attending a Master of Arts at Royal Academy of Music in Michael Lewin’s class. Addis stood out in numerous international competitions. To name but a few, he won the 3rd prize at the Brussels International Guitar Competition and the 2nd prize at Plovdiv International Guitar Competition in Bulgaria.
Additionally, Addis participated in several solo recitals in both Italy, Germany, Serbia, United Kingdom and Bulgaria, in fact, he performed at the Palazzina Liberty in Milan, at the Senato della Repubblica Italiana in Rome, Italian Institute of Culture in Munich, Germany, Theâtre du Vaudeville in Brussels and at the Treća beogradska in Belgrade.

Bradley Johnson is a guitarist with a specialism in modern repertoire. Composers he has
worked with include Philip Cashian, Edward Cowie, Georg Friedrich Haas and Morgan Hayes. Recent projects include recording the two Guitar pieces commissioned for the Royal Academy of Music’s ‘200 Pieces Bicentenary project’ by Gary Carpenter and David Gorton; for this he was awarded the Bache Fund Prize and the recordings will be released on the Academy’s label in 2022. Future commissions include a piece for Guitar and Harp by Edward Cowie and a Guitar Quartet by Marino Arcaro for the Spectrum Guitar Quartet.

Sergiu Hudrea is a young Romanian guitarist who, having achieved success in numerous competitions across Europe, is busy launching a performing career with recitals in his home country, and also in Hungary, Serbia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Having been used to the stage since a very young age, what made him stand out was his engagement with the public and artistry of communicating his craft to the audience. Whether in solo or chamber music, Sergiu’s main goal is to offer his listeners a gateway through his emotions and music.
