Guitar4mation returns to recording studio
After taking a longer break, we returned to the recording studio in Pardubice last weekend to continue the work on our new CD.
With our seasoned team (Antonin Dvorak, recording engineer / Milos Sir, recording supervisor) we spent intense hours on Robert Schumann's "4 Studies op.56 for the pedal piano", just without any pedals or pianos. In June 2013, we will finish the recordings with works by Pascoal and Chick Corea and hopefully, our new CD will be out soon!
Take a look at some pictures taken during the recording session at the Pardubice conservatory:
Guitar4mation to visit Kaluga International Guitar Festival in Russia
For the first time, Guitar4mation will visit Russia this spring. The group was invited to take part in the International Guitar Festival of Kaluga, south of Moscow. The line - up of this year's edition is quite impressive, featuring artists such as flamenco legend Tomatito, the quitar quartet "Los Romeros", the Hungarian "Katona Duo", the "Duo Umbral" from Uruguay as well as the famous jazz groups "Acoustic Alchemy" and the "Rosenberg Trio" - and, of course, Guitar4mation! We are looking forward to this adventure!

Guitar4mation works on new arrangements
Autumn is rehearsal time for Guitar4mation. At this moment, the group works on new arrangements that will be presented in 2013, which marks the tenth stage anniversary for the current line-up with Martin Wesely, Petr Saidl, Michal Nagy and Martin Schwarz. Right now we are digging into the "classic" tango repertoire, which has never been featured in our porgrammes until now. We are captivated by this music's colours, emotions and its rhythmic energy.
