Live THE ultimate guitar experience!
The IGF Guitar Summit is back at Kings Place for three packed days of concerts, lunchtime recitals, and a panel discussion on La Leona: Women and the Guitar.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we had to postpone some of our planned concerts until the IGF Guitar Summit 2022. Travel restrictions and rules regarding self-isolation and testing made the concerts by David Russell, Stochelo Rosenberg and Rafael Aguirre impossible for the 2021 edition.
However, we are delighted to be able to present a wonderful live programme full of brilliant young and established guitarists, a record number of new, specially-commissioned works and a groundbreaking project called La Leona. New commissions by no fewer than five young women composers are at the heart of the La Leona project, which will run for a number of years to come.
Come and hear celebrated Flamenco virtuoso Juan Martín, the outstanding young players on our Young Artist Platform 2020-2021, along with London International Guitar Competition 2019 winner George Tarlton and the wonderful Katalin Koltai – a great champion of guitar music by women composers. My own G Plus Ensemble will play exciting new commissions by the doyen of guitar composers, Leo Brouwer and the brilliant young composer and guitarist Laura Snowden who will also play her own solo works.
Join us for a thrilling weekend of guitar!
