“Decameron negro” promotion and recital

On Wednesday 16th February 2005, Victor Vidovic
will give a recital and promote the Decameron negro
album in the Small Hall of Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall
in Zagreb, beginning at 20:00.
Apart from the compositions by Dyens, Walton, Domeniconi,
Brouwer and Takemitsu, included in the album, Vidovic will
perform works by Villa-Lobos, Tarrega, his personal
arrangements of Arlen and Albeniz and his own compositions.
The programme includes some of the classical guitar
evergreens, such as Reminiscence of Alhambra and
Asturias, as well as modern compositions and authorial
works by Vidovic, reflecting in style the artist’s original
approach to his instrument arising from twenty years of
concert experience.
The audience will also have an opportunity to hear a few
first performances, such as Hommage á Jimi Hendrix.
Tickets will be on advance sale/sale at the Vatroslav Lisinski
ticket-office from 14th February 2005.

Vidovic & Zeravica guitars

Vidovic and Zeravica co-operate

Victor Vidovic starts playing a guitar built by Croatian constructor Marinko Josip Zeravica, a master craftsman currently living and working in Mainz, Germany. About his model, the Sempiterna, Vidovic says: “It is a beautifully crafted instrument, enchanting in its sound colour and volume, the wholeness of its tone spectrum and its magical warmth.“. Vidovic and Zeravica will continue to co-operate, sharing their knowledge and experience.
