After winning the NIER prize (€ 1 000) for best performance of the commissioned composition Corren los soles by Alex Nante last Thursday, the 20-years-old Bulgarian Georgi Dimitrov-Jojo also grabbed first Prize (€ 12 000) at the cciMB 2021 guitar competition with his stunning performance of the Concerto No. 1 in Re by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco last night at the Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Runner-up 27-years-old Luka Lovreković from Croatia, who performed the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo, took home the second prize (€ 5 000), while Agustín Nazzetta, 31 years old from Argentina, who also performed the Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco concert, was awarded third Prize (€ 3 000). Corren los soles was also performed as a solo piece by all finalists. Congratulations to all of you! We would like to thank all the wonderful guitarists who participated in the competition and hope that they had a good time in Bologna to “meet, exchange, perform and learn”.
