Australian musician Dr. Daniel Nistico is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and talented guitarists to come from this country. Daniel has recently returned from Rochester, America, after completing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at Eastman University.
"a world class artist who plays at the highest levels of instrumental virtuosity" (Nicholas Goluses, Eastman School of Music).
Growing up in Melbourne, Daniel is well known in Australian guitar circles. Not only as a gifted and virtuosic performer, but also as an educator. Daniel has authored and published several books relating to guitar technique, and how understanding harmony empowers musical interpretation and performance.
Daniel has a keen interest in the performance practice of 18th and 19th century guitar music, and strives to promote guitar music that has not had the fortune of being widely performed. His debut solo album 'Un Viaje Mistico... A Mystical Journey' is a result of this cause, containing hidden gems of the guitar's repertoire including works by English composer William Lovelady, and American composer John Anthony Lennon.
This concert will be 60mins without intermission.
At the conclusion of the concert, everyone is invited to join Daniel for refreshments which include complimentary beer, wine and cheese thanks to our good friends at Dainton Beer and Delinquente Wine!
There will also be fantastic guitar displays from local luthiers, so enjoy having a 'pluck' and chat with these wonderful luthiers!
PLEASE NOTE: Our last MGF concert sold out prior to the event. So reserve your seat early to avoid disappointment!
