RAPHAELLA SMITS (Belgium)

Smits plays with more heart than anybody should be allowed to have.

-Tom Chandler, Classical Guitar Corner-

Miss Smits is an uncommonly musical guitarist: she has nimble fingers, a prismatic sense of timbre, and a serene dignity that informs all she plays.

-Tim Page, New York Times, USA-

Raphaella Smits' playing is hypnotic, virtuosic and captivating.

-Len Verrett iš EarlyRomanticGuitar.com, USA-

My memories of her previous concerts were of wonderful musicianship and passionate intensity, and the big dark sound of her Gilbert eight-string. But this evening she had a bright, loud little 19th-century guitar, and she seemed to have traded in a Mercedes limo for a Porsche. To play Legnani, one has to play with a dramatic virtuosity, and so she did. Her Mertz was marvellously schmaltzy, her Giuliani/Rossini appropriately theatrical, and all played with the sort of technical brilliance most guitarists can only dream of. So, that's how this music was supposed to sound! This concert was the talk of the festival. Brava, Raphaella!

-GFA Soundboard, Vol. XXX, no.1, USA-

Toda una gloria!

-Rene Vargas Vera, Argentina-

VLADISLAV BLAHA (Czech Republic)

The sonority, tone and projection of the guitar was utilized to its fullest potential in the hands of Vladislav Blaha; and in turn, brought out the most subtle dynamics of this master's touch. Mr. Blaha holds a unique position in the international classical guitar community.

About the Baltic Guitar Festival

The members of the Baltic Guitar Quartet have been organizing the international Baltic Guitar Festival since 2009. During their international concert tours and performances in various festivals, the quartet musicians attended a lot of memorable performances, which have never been presented in the Baltic States before.

Thus the idea to organize a concert series rose in order to present the world’s best guitar virtuosos, to inspire guitarists and music lovers in general and also give the classical guitar a prominent place it deserves in the scene of classical music.

The following artists performed in the previous concerts of the festival: Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (USA), Bandini Chiacchiaretta duo (Italy), Roland Dyens (France), Amadeus Duo (Germany and Canada), Luz de Luna (Belgium), Irina Kulikova (Russia/the Netherlands), Daniel Marques (Brazil), Thibault Cauvin (France), Dimitris Regginos (Cyprus), and Paolo Devecchi and Salvatore Seminara guitar duo (Italy), Judicaël Perroy (France), Eden Stell Guitar Duo (UK).

In 2018, having got the invitation of the Baltic Guitar Quartet, a star of Italy Aniello Desiderio, a particularly sensitively performing Belgian guitarist Raphaella Smits and a guest from the Czech Republic Vladislav Bláha will have concerts and also share their experience with the young classical guitar talents for the first time in Lithuania. During the festival there will also be seminars on improvisation and the control of stage
