BONN: Tobias Kassung

Kulturzentrum Hardtberg, Rochusstraße 276, 53123 Bonn

"A personal album"

As the Artistic Director of the Hardtberg Guitar Concerts, Tobias Kendung is a regular guest in Bonn - but in recent years he has always been with one of his chamber music ensembles. Now he will finally present a solo program again. And this program is a very special and very personal one.

Not only as a guitarist, but also as a composer, Tobias Kassung has already performed numerous of his own works and thus entertained his audience. In Bonn, his own pieces form a link between the two main themes of his concert: first, the music of Fernando Sor - certainly the greatest composer genius on the guitar in the classical music period and a master comparable to the greats of the Viennese classical music, but on our "small “instrument. And second, the music of two great Brazilian masters: Heitor Villa-Lobos and Baden Powell. Both knew how to combine Brazilian music with European-classical traditions in an ingenious way.
