Nejc Kuhar teaches four critical aspects of Mauro Giuliani’s Gran Sonata Eroica: form, character, fingerings, and harmonies. Kuhar begins the masterclass by sharing some background information on the piece including whether it was actually Giuliani’s composition as well as Giuliani’s personal connection to Beethoven.
The lesson continues with Kuhar’s thoughts on the four aspects of the piece he believes players should be aware of when interpreting this composition.
The international prizes, glowing reviews (Washington Post, Classical Guitar Magazine, Los Angeles Daily News etc.) and the very response of the audience at home and abroad all point to an artist in the round, successfully negotiating the joined path of composition and interpretation.
As a guitarist as well as a composer, he won numerous prizes (1st prizes in Germany, China, Italy, Turkey, USA, etc.), he was also scholarship holder of Slovenian Culture Ministry and of Gallus Foundation.
Nejc is the professor of classical guitar at The Joseph Haydn Conservatoire in Eisenstadt.
