With Participants of the Darmstadt Summer Course
As one of the flagship projects of his 2018 Guitar Studio in Darmstadt, Yaron Deutsch has commissioned a cycle of 12 etudes for electric guitar, referencing Heitor Villa-Lobos’ iconic 12 etudes for guitar written 90 years ago for Andreas Segovia. These new etudes will be premiered by participants in Darmstadt. In addition to the eight commissioned works by Pierluigi Billone, Chaya Czernowin, Andreas Dohmen, Clemens Gadenstätter, Elena Rykova, José María Sánchez-Verdú, Rebecca Saunders and Christopher Trapani, Yaron has chosen four Darmstadt Summer Course participants from a call to complete the cycle: Avshalom Ariel, Matthew Grouse, Patricia Martinez and Oliver Thurley.
