The final concert after Petrit Çeku’s week-long guitar masterclass was held by the participants last night, 24 July, at the Bunić-Kaboga Summer Villa, with the young musicians also receiving their participation certificates.
The guitar and chamber music masterclass was led by prominent guitarist and Festival crowd favourite, the young virtuoso Petrit Çeku. From 28 July to 24 July in the Luka Sorkčević Art School, as part of the 72nd Dubrovnik Summer Festival and supported by the Caboga Stiftung foundation, the masterclass focused on interpretation, expressiveness and artistic growth of the musicians in a wider sense. Aimed primarily at students and guitarists with higher education, the masterclass’ participants included five participants from Slovenia, Croatia and Kosovo with three guitar students from Dubrovnik. Petrit Çeku handed Lekë Morina, Nikola Šrajbek, Marko Kovačić, Tomislav Jelavić, Tea Čerenak, Karmen Bogdanović, Robert Prusina and Teo Dabelić participation certificates at the end of the lovely concert.
Festival audiences will be able to enjoy Petrit Çeku’s 23 August concert, where he will masterfully play guitar pieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Listeš, Barrios and Villa-Lobos at the Rector’s Palace as part of the 72nd Festival music programme.
