In the latest All Strings Considered podcast Scott Wolf talks with Rovshan Mamedkuliev, who recorded some of his arrangements for us a few weeks back.
Rovshan Mamedkuliev, Russian/Azerbaijani guitarist, and winner of the 2012 Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition, stopped by to chat with All Strings Considered right towards the end of his 2013 international tour. Rovshan gave us notes on preparing for the GFA competition, talks about his choice to play the ever-popular Capricho Árabe in the competition final, and you’ll hear that performance. He also introduces us to his arrangements of piano miniatures by Azerbaijan composer Fikret Amirov, Ivushka by Russian guitarist and composer Sergei Rudnev, and the GFA set piece for that year’s competition, Andrew York’s Just How Funky Are You.
