Nejc Kuhar finished his Masters degree (with honors) in guitar and composition in Vienna, studying the guitar under Alvaro Pierri and composition under Dr. Reiner Bishof and Professor Christian Minkowitsch. Since 2015, Kuhar teaches guitar at the Music Academy in Vienna while also teaching at the Frankfurt Music School since 2013.
Here’s Nejc Kuhar with another of his compositions, Black Hole, played on a great 1979 Ron Hachez cedar and CSA rosewood guitar that reminded us all an awful lot of a Miguel Rodriguez. Check out Nejc’s video of his piece Corfu here, and if you want the sheet music for Black Hole you can get that here.
Nejc Kuhar is a frequent award-winner both as a composer and a guitarist, so we were very happy to have him come play one of his newer pieces for us – Corfu (in fact, this is the first video of the piece he’s recorded). Nejc plays a beautiful 2001 Eric Sahlin spruce-top. Look out for another video soon with another one of Nejc’s great compositions.
And if you’d like the music for Corfu just click here to buy it.
We’re all waiting to learn more details about the third edition of Virtual Guitar Orchestra. The founders, Mak Grgic and Uros Baric are going to announce soon what composition, and more importantly, what style of music their massive virtual ensemble is going to focus on this time. We have some good news for anyone who can’t wait to see the next big project. Virtual Guitar Orchestra has just released a new video of their smaller ensemble.Continue Reading
It’s been another amazing year for guitar music over here at GSI and as the year wraps up we’d like to take a moment to thank all of the amazing musicians who have lent us their time and talent to create the great videos we publish every week. We obviously couldn’t do any of it without them and we are extremely grateful for the music and for the friends we’ve made over the years in our quest to record every guitar we can get our hands on! So here, in more or less reverse order of appearance, are the artists who have shared their talent with us this year:
We have photos of the beginning stages of the new guitar being made for us by Granada luthier Jose Vigil – a cedar and Indian rosewood classical in the Granada school tradition that our own JohnPaul Trotter got a look at on his recent trip to Granada. It’ll be a while before the guitar is ready, so in the meantime check out this great video of Nejc Kuhar playing the most recent cedar-top we had from Vigil.
2016 was a pretty epic year for videos at GSI. Of course we constantly try to improve the quality of our videos, but when the Russell Cleveland collection arrived in late 2015 we knew we had to step it up and document these historic instruments before they found new owners all around the world. To that end we brought on digital media producer Tara Stewart, who was just back from a sabbatical in Spain after producing all of Fender’s videos in Los Angeles for three years before that. We upgraded our gear so that we now shoot with three Canon 5D Mark iii cameras, and Apogee Digital lent us one of their amazing Ensemble thunderbolt interfaces. With Tara on video duties I was able to spend more time on audio and hopefully improve what I already thought was pretty good audio quality. And with two of us on the team now, we were able to double our output of videos.
