A Renowned Serbian Musician to Perform in Cuba

The Prestigious Serbian lutenist Edin Karamazov will offer a concert on February 19 in the Minor Basilica of the Convent of St. Francis of Assisi, and will perform pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach and Cuban guitarist Leo Brouwer.

According to Leo Brouwer’s Office, Karamazov will combine the lute with Bach’s pieces and the electric guitar with a selection of Brouwer’s Paisajes Cubanos.

The concert, entitled Hecho en silencio (Done in silence), offers the opportunity to enjoy the technical possibilities of some instruments played by the skilful Serbian artist in a mixture of baroque with Paisajes Cubanos.

Edin Karamazov (Zenica, Bosnia, 1965) is one of the most outstanding lutenists in the world, thanks to his career as classic guitarist.

He has recorded several albums as soloist, along with ancient music bands like Hilliard Ensemble, L'Arpeggiata, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Hesperion XX.

Karamazov has performed in important stages such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Berlin Philharmonie, Konzerthaus de Viena and Wigmore Hall in London.

His most recent album, The lute is a song, produced in 2009, is the result of joint work with internationally known artists like Renee Fleming, Kaliopi, Sting and Andreas Scholl.

This album included his version for the electric guitar of Paisaje Cubano con Rumba by Leo Brouwer, which will be executed in the concert in the Basilica.
