Program

Denis Azabagic, a native of Bosnia, is one of the most compelling classical guitarists on the international concert circuit today. Soundboard magazine said, “Azabagic’s playing is virtually flawless and his technical facility is a joy to see as well as hear,” while the Los Angeles Valley Star praised him saying, “once he started playing his guitar he became ageless. One couldn't imagine where the man, the instrument, and the music separated, if at all.” 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.” Azabagic went on to win twenty-four prizes in international competitions between 1992 and 1999, of which eleven were first prizes.
