ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Guitar virtuoso Christoph Denoth is getting ready to visit Istanbul’s Akbank Sanat for a concert on Dec. 13 at 8 p.m.
Denoth was born in Basel and spent an important part of his early life in the Grisons. His extraordinary musical talent became apparent early on, at which stage he already had a great love for the guitar.
His studies of the classical guitar led him to the conservatories of Lucerne, Basel, and Zurich. As well as master classes with Pepe Romero and others, he trained as a soloist with Oscar Ghiglia at the Basel Musikakademie.
He regularly performs as a soloist with chamber orchestras and ensembles, such as with the Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain (Peter Maxwell Davies) and the Offenburger Streichtrio, as well as at international music festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein. He has also performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall in New York, at the Berlin Philharmonie, and at the Salzburg Mozarteum. He recently performed the Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez in New York.
Denoth says that he is endeavoring to expand the tonal and dynamic range of today’s concert guitar.
