Artyom Dervoed’s debut in Victoria!

Universe Guitare (France) has famously dubbed Artyom Dervoed the “Tsar of the guitar”. This bold claim is backed by the growing international demand, an active recording career, and no less than 16 first place awards in various international competitions. Mr Dervoed became the first Russian to win two of the most prestigious contests, Michele Pittaluga International Classical Guitar Competition in Italy and Her Royal Highness Princess Cristina Competition in Spain. His album of works by Russian composers, released worldwide on Naxos in 2008, became one of the top ten bestselling chamber music records. A regular guest on the world’s most prestigious stages, including the Berliner Philharmonie, Kölner Philharmonie, Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Bunka Kaikan, and Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Mr. Dervoed is among the most eminent champions of the classical guitar. Having mastered the entire standard orchestral, chamber and solo guitar literature, he is significantly expanding the existing repertoire through collaborations with leading composers, whose works he inspires, commissions and performs.
An official D’Addario artist, Mr. Dervoed will make his Victoria debut in what promises to be a season highlight.
