Also featuring at TGF 2018: Gerhard Reichenbach!

D’Addario artist Gerhard Reichenbach since a long time belongs to the leading european guitar
He is regularly invited for solo recitals to the international guitar festivals and he played in prestigious
concert halls like for example the Berliner Philharmonie and the International House of Music in
Moscow. Together with orchestra he performed a large number of standard repertoire concertos as
well as unknown concertos like the Concerto op.77 by Gerard Drozd or the Concerto for guitar and
chamber orchestra by Boris Asaffiev. Experts and reviews agree in praising his instrumental dexterity,
his stage presence and – especially in his audacious transcriptions of the music by J.S. Bach – the
extraordinary clarity in handling polyphonic texture on the guitar. His last solo album, a LP/Video
recording of Bachs piano partitas 1&3 is valuated in the reviews as „an album that belongs into the
collection of every guitarist“ (Akustik Gitarre). The world famous harpsichord and piano virtuoso
Andreas Staier says about the same recording: „A really interesting recording which I like very much,
the music is phrased lively and with intelligence.“
Gerhard Reichenbach is also a festival organizer (Vissani Guitar Festival Greece, Thessaloniki Guitar
Club, Internationales Bergisches Gitarrenfestival, Gitarre Wuppertal 1.0) and a passionate teacher. His
students are regularely winning awards at international competitions and they have successful cariers
as teachers, university teachers and performing artists.
After a period of teaching at the Franz Liszt Academy in Weimar and at State Conservatory Thessaloniki
in Greece, in 2009 he was appointed as Professor at the University of Music Cologne.
He was awarded with the Cultural Award of the city Velingrad (Rhodopes, Bulgaria) for his intercultural
activities in the Balkan countries and with the Enno Springmann Cultural Award of the city Wuppertal
in Germany.
