Vancouver Classical Guitar Society Unites Virtuoso Pair for an Unforgettable Evening

by Madonna

In the realm of classical guitar, Vancouver has earned its reputation as a hub for excellence. The Vancouver Classical Guitar Society is poised to present an exceptional evening featuring two of the finest classical guitarists, both of whom call Vancouver home. Michael Kolk, a prominent soloist renowned across the nation, and Anna Pietrzak, a Polish master who now graces Vancouver with her presence and founded the Vancouver Guitar Orchestra, are set to share the stage in a remarkable concert scheduled for November 4.

This dynamic duo will captivate the audience with their individual virtuosity through solo performances while joining forces to exhibit the expressive beauty of classical guitar music.

“We’ve carefully selected pieces that resonate with our shared passion, often characterized by lively rhythms and captivating melodies,” affirm Pietrzak and Kolk in a collective statement. “The audience can expect to be treated to Spanish dances by the talented Enrique Granados, the vivacious and enjoyable ‘Tres Cenas Brasileiras’ by Sergio Assad, and enchanting compositions by tango maestro Astor Piazzolla.”

This extraordinary performance is slated to take place at the prestigious Koerner Hall within the Vancouver Academy of Music. As the fall breeze envelops the city, this event promises to infuse warmth and brilliance into the night. It also marks a special homecoming for Michael Kolk, who initiated his musical journey at the school at the tender age of six. For those unable to attend in person, livestream tickets are available to ensure that this musical spectacle reaches as many hearts as possible.

The program will include an exquisite touch of Polish folk music adapted for guitar duo by Marek Pasieczny, in addition to a movement from Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, adding diversity and depth to the evening’s repertoire.

This collaboration between Michael Kolk and Anna Pietrzak is a testament to the power of classical guitar and its ability to transcend boundaries, inviting audiences into a world of timeless melodies and intricate rhythms.
