Ferdinand Rebay was an Austrian composer, music teacher, choral conductor and pianist of Bartók's time. He was introduced to the guitar through his colleague Jakob Ortner, and his dedication to it was only increased by the fact that his niece Gerta Hammersmid, Ortner's guitar pupil, was committed to performing Rebay's works. He wrote nearly 400 works for the instrument, his anachronistic style rooted in 19th century Austro-German musical values. He created the romantic post-Beethoven sonata for this instrument. The clear melodies and translucent accompaniments of Schubert and Schumann's songs are truly rewarding material for various transcriptions. And the guitar is ideally suited to lead the melody vocally and add subtle accompaniment. Sainz de la Maza is a Spanish guitarist and composer who was a professor of guitar at the Madrid Conservatory until his retirement. His works, composed exclusively for guitar, draw heavily on the sounds of Castilian and Andalusian folk music. Some of his works have become fundamental works of the guitar repertoire. Mauro Giuliani is an Italian guitar virtuoso and one of the most important composers of the 18th and 19th century guitar literature. As there were many talented guitarists throughout Italy in the early 19th century, but Italians showed little interest in music outside of opera, Giuliani moved north and eventually settled in Vienna, where he spearheaded the classical guitar movement, taught a rich repertoire and composed extensively. Fernando Sor is Giuliani's Catalan contemporary. He made his name primarily as a guitarist, and his 65 compositions for this instrument form an important part of the classical guitar repertoire. He also composed numerous vocal works, which had a noticeable influence on the song-like melodic treatment of his guitar works.
The concert is jointly organized by the Potenton Foundation, the PTE MK ZMI, and the Pécs Academic Committee's Arts Working Committee. It is supported by the National Cultural Fund and the Human Resources Fund.
