He is considered to be one of the most interesting artists of the classical guitar and his clear and pure musical interpretations are compared with masters like Andres Segovia or Glenn Gould.
„Listening to your playing I feel confident about the future of the guitar. The work, the performer, the interpretation- phantastic!“
(Prof. Konrad Ragossnig, Wien)
Gerhard Reichenbach (* 1965) ist einer der international führenden deutschen Konzertgitarristen und gilt als einer der interessantesten Gitarristen seiner Generation.
During already 40 years of performing recitals (debut recital in Düsseldorf in 1980, international debut at the Volos Guitar Festival Greece 1990)) he played solo recitals and concerts with orchestra at many of the biggest international guitar festivals and in philharmonic concert halls. He was the first german guitarist who had the honour to perform a recital at the International House of Music in Moscow, one of the biggest concert houses in Europe. In 2003 he was invited to his concert debut to the Berliner Philharmonie.
His audiences, musical experts and the critical acclaim are enthousiastic about his intepretations of classical guitar repertoire from many different musical styles, and his performances are highlights of a masterly guitar playing which combines virtuosity and brilliance, sensitivity and a special poetic sense for sound with an impressive stage presence. His active concert repertoire (about 35 different solo programmes, chamber music and a number of concertos with orchestra) consists of music from 5 centuries and from all classical styles. Among this works , his transcriptions of baroque keyboard music – especially his transcriptions of the piano partitas 1&3 by Johann Sebastian Bach – have been considered as outstanding, establishing his reputation as one of the best Bach interpreters in the classical guitar world.Read more...
