Guitar Recital: Michalis Kontaxakis

Michalis Kontaxakis, First Prize Winner in the 2005 International Francisco Tárrega Guitar Competition, is considered today to be one of the leading young Greek guitarists. He studied the guitar with Vassilis Mastorakis and Costas Cotsiolis, and at the Robert Schumann Musikhochschule in Düsseldorf. In this recital, featuring a guitar made by Alkis, Athens, he performs the world première recording of Preludios de Primavera (Preludes of Spring) by Joaquín Clerch, and Tárrega’s enchanting Fantasy on themes from La Traviata.
