Daniel Bolshoy has been a prominent figure in Vancouver since 2011 when he moved from Montreal to head the guitar departments at UBC and the VSO school of music. He is regularly praised for his friendly and informative spoken introductions and progressive programming of solo and chamber music. His students have gone on to win competitions and become local performers. Now the Guitar Lecturer at The University of Georgia, the VCGS is excited to welcome Dr.Bolshoy back for this performance.
"Bolshoy, though he possesses a technique of the highest order, is a musician first. People who don't know the guitar well probably don't guess at the grueling difficulties that much of his repertoire presents... When he plays, one hears music, not technique, and you can't say that about many guitarists.
His rendition of Tarrega's Fantasia sobre motivos de La Traviata was a special delight, and his arrangement of the Granados Valses poéticos, op. 10 was full of charm and whimsy."
-The Ottawa Citizen
