Rotenburg Guitar Week

2018, 07.28.-08.05.

Course - Chambermusic - Concerts

In 2017 we celebrated "35 years Rotenburg Gitar Week". How can one continue after such a jubilee? There was the idea of celebrating the great women of the guitar scene. We present Raphaëlla Smita and Margarita Escarpa as guest performers. To this end, we invite three guitar makers and will select two female composers for our guitar orchestra.


Raphaëlla Smits

Raphaëlla Smits is one of the most popular guest lecturers of the Rotenburger Guitar Week, because she is a highly committed teacher, excellent musician and - she loves to cook for all participants! Can we have something better? more

Margarita Escarpa

"An artist, one hundred percent!", Maria Luisa Anido exclaimed, one of the most famous guitarists in the 20th century, when she first heard the young artist in 1990. In the same year, she released her first CD and won eight international prizes as a student. By the way, she completed her studies in mathematics at the Autonomous University of Madrid. More

Hans Wilhelm Kaufmann

At the course he is going to give single lessons, leads groups of chamber music, offers workshops and conducts the guitar orchestra. Hans Wilhelm Kaufmann will hold a workshop about "New Guitar Schools" and "New Music for Guitar"as well as "New Teaching Methods" for all participating guitar teachers. Weitere Infos

Jessica Kaiser

is one of the most interesting guitarists of the young generation. At the International Guitar Competition in Budapest in 2017 she convinced with her very expressive interpretations and - together with the Hungarian guitarist Lotti Szalai - received the special prize of the Rotenburger Gitarrenwoche as the best participant. Because our regular lecturer Dirk Lemmermann cannot be present this year, Jessica Kaiser spontaneously agreed to step in, which we are very happy about.

Dirk Lemmermann

Dirk Lemmermann studied guitar, music education, germanistic philology,  and musicology in Berlin. At the course he is going to offer single lessons - in particular for amateurs, to lead chamber music groups as well as the guitar orchestra, and - if there might be time – he may offer a choir for interested participants. But this year unfortunately he has to cancel his participation due to scheduling reasons.
