“Beautiful sound and unerring musical sense …” — Soundboard
Denis Azabagic is one of the most compelling classical guitarists on the international concert circuit today. He performs concerts around the world, maintaining a balance between solo recitals, chamber music concerts w/Cavatina Duo, and engagements as a soloist with orchestras. In 1993 at the age of 20, he became the youngest winner of one of the most prestigious International Guitar Competitions Jacinto e Inocencio Guerrero, in Madrid, Spain. After listening to Mr. Azabagic, distinguished Spanish composer Anton Garcia Abril said, “I am sure that with time, he is going to be one of the greatest guitarists of the world.”
Between 1992 and 1999 he won twenty-four prizes in international competitions, of which eleven were first prizes. He has written a book On Competitions based on his experience during these years, published by Mel Bay. He has recorded seven CDs for international labels such as Naxos, Cedille, Opera Tres, and Orobroy as well as two DVDs for the Mel Bay Company. His recordings and live performances are highly praised by music critics for his elegant approach to music and his unique way of communicating and reaching the audiences’ hearts. As a guest instrumentalist and soloist Azabagic has appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Sacramento Chamber Orchestra, Madrid Symphony, and L’Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Mons, among others. He is a regular guest at such venues as Chicago’s Symphony Center; Masters of the Guitar at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam; Radio France in Paris; Aix en Provence Festival, France; El Palau de la Musica, Valencia, Spain; Savannah on Stage, USA; Omni Foundation, USA; Ravinia Festival, USA; National Chang Kai Shek Cultural Center, Taiwan; and National Center for the Performing Arts, Beijing, China.
