We're so excited to have Adriano Del Sal stay at Cremorne Point Manor this week. More information about his achievements:
Adriano Del Sal is one of the most significant classical guitar performers of recent years. His extraordinary musical talent, profound artistic sensibility (as his total technical control of the instrument), makes his performances truly unforgettable. Here's what an audience member recently wrote about him:
"Some concerts are pure magical - when an artist can play with exquisite mastery of their instrument, enchanting their packed audience of music lovers and creating the most sublime music... Last night I was fortunate in attending the inaugural concert of the new Professor of Guitar in Vienna, Austria, Adriano Del Sal. I arrived an hour early and was lucky. The room got completely packed, excitement filling the air. And then: what a beautiful program! What an amazing concert! Two delicious encores! What a superb pleasure!! Thank you so much, Adriano."
Born in 1977, he began studying the guitar with Stefano Viola at the J.Tomadini Conservatory of Udine where he graduated in 1999 with Guido Fichtner. At the same time, he attended the Francisco. Tarrega Academy of Pordone, furthering his studies with Stefano Viola and Paolo Pegoraro. He attended master classes with prominent concert artists such as David Russell, Manuel Barrueco, Stefano Grondona, Alberto Ponce, Angelo Gilardino and Carlo Marchione.
