Scott Wolf interviews Vladimir Gorbach
I had a quick phone conversation with Vladimir Gorbach, the 2011 Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artists Competition winner!
Vladimir is currently about halfway through his GFA sponsored concert and masterclass tour, with performances in Oregon, Texas, and Arizona in January 2013, and California, New York, Florida, and Minnesota in February, and quite a few more.
It was really interesting to hear about how Vladimir prepared and practiced for the competition, his philosophy on competitions in general, and to hear some of the music he’s playing on his tour program. You’ll hear him play a Scarlatti sonata, Vicente Asencio’s Collectici Intim, and my personal favorite, his amazing interpretation of Piazzolla’s Estaciones Porteñas.
You can also see some great videos of his playing on his website.
See Vladimir in San Jose February 2, 2013
