Zoran Dukic is one of the most distinguished classical guitarists of our time. His concert performances, whether as a soloist or accompanied by an orchestra, leave long-lasting impressions on audiences and critics alike. A typical review of one of his shows often sounds like this accolade from Gelvesberger Zeitung of Germany, who called the show “A thrilling concert… the audience was on its feet already after the first piece… a phenomenal evening.”
Dukic graduated from the Music Academy of Zagreb with Darko Petrinjak, and completed his studies with Hubert Käppel at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne. In his “tour de force” competition years (1990-1997) he won an astonishing number of competitions.
He is the only guitarist to have won both Andrés Segovia competitions in Granada and in Palma de Mallorca. In the Madrid’s most heralded Spanish guitar competition, in front of the Royal Family, he was awarded the special prize for the best interpretation of Spanish music – the first time it had ever been awarded to a non-Spaniard. Showing astounding mastery in a wide variety of musical periods and styles, he has also won competitions dedicated to Fernando Sor, Manuel Ponce, Manuel de Falla, and Francisco Tárrega among others.
Though he considers the music by Bach is still the focal point of his musical life, his premieres are strengthened by his admiration of contemporary expression, including works by Takemitsu, Henze, Reily, Carter, Gubaidulina, and many others. He enjoys a special affinity for Spanish and South American musical idiom, the core repertoire of classical guitar. Currently, his carefully balanced programs present a range of music from Bach to Britten, from Sor to Albéniz, from Tárrega to Villa-Lobos and Brouwer.
El Norte (Mexico) called Dukic a “…Master of the instrument, shining in virtuoso moments as well as in the intimate ones. The sonority he creates from his guitar is as admirable as his palette of expression and elegance.” The Italian periodical Il Gazzettino gushed that, “…always the master of his instrument, Dukic demonstrated spectacular virtuosity over and over again together with a great maturity and powerful inspiration.” Exhibiting such mastery over so many styles proves that Dukic is truly a transcendent talent, and one we are honored to showcase.
