On the morning of Wednesday 21 June, the 2023 Festival outreach programme was held at Teignmouth Community School for around 20 students aged 11 – 18 years.
The Montenegrin Guitar Duo, classical guitarists Goran Krivokapić and Danijel Cerović, gave a special performance of Italian guitarist Carlo Domeniconi’s Circus Music for two guitars. It was a rapid journey through nine brief pieces, each displaying extraordinary guitar skills and a wonderful sense of humour: ‘The Argentinian Knife thrower’; ‘Spanish Riders on Greek Horses’; ‘The Wax Museum’; ‘Plik, the Flea of the Andes’; ‘Ural Magic Voice and the Don Cossaks’; ‘Fire Brigade “On Ice” ‘; ‘The Yogi who Disappears through the Key Hole’ and finally ‘The Orchestra Says Good-Bye.’
Following a Q & A opportunity, Goran and Danijel went on to give the students a taste of Piazzolla and Bach, pieces they were to perform at the evening concert in St Peter’s Church.
All in all a wonderful opportunity for the TCS students to hear these two eminent guitarists perform.
