Pirmąkart Baltijos šalyse! Legendinis kompozitorius ir atlikėjas, klasikos ir džiazo virtuozas - Roland Dyens!
Roland Dyens is a major figure in the world of the guitar, firmly established in the canon
of famous guitarist/composers such as Léo Brouwer, Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani. On the 21st
of January 2010, Roland Dyens is honored with the privilege of being the only classical guitarist invited to participate to an homage to the great Django Reinhardt, in a concert that will be given at the legendary Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.
In July, 2011, his recital at the International Córdoba Guitar Festival received the highest accolade of the coveted "Five Stars" from the Spanish Press, titling its review "Roland Dyens, El Mago de la guitarra" (the Wizzard of guitar).
His eclectic compositions and arrangements combine classical, jazz and world and are widely
performed and highly acclaimed throughout the world.
Roland Dyens is ranked highest in the "Top 100" list of most recorded original works for the guitar by living composers, worldwide. Furthermore, three of Dyens' compositions are part these 100, according to the remarkable book by the Canadian musicologist Enrique Robichaud, "Guitar's Top 100 : Classical Guitar's Most Recorded Music" published in 2013.
Roland is also a highly sought after teacher and currently holds the highly prestigious post at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.
Classical in the fingers, Jazz player in mind...
In the world of Jazz, the notion of a concert program does not exist. Roland Dyens never gives a prior notice of the pieces that he will play in recital. It is his way of creating the best possible atmosphere, by taking into account his audience, the acoustics of the hall and especially his deep desire to be true to his feelings at the time that he actually interprets the music.
In order to create the warm contact whith his public that he treasures, Dyens likes to present the program himself, as the evening unfolds. In the same way, the improvisation with which he opens all of his concerts is a sort of “tuning in” process, a pre-lude that is indispensable for this special artist as it used to be for the luthenists in the past, awaiting the “Suite”.
It makes a nice link between the world of Jazz and those classical lovers who have a taste for invention...
