Alex without doubt is one of the most sought-after fingerstyle guitarists in the last two years. Not least his numerous gigs, which are distributed around almost the whole world, show this. Most recently, the 21-year-old exceptional guitarist from Russia played a long and very successful China tour. In 2016 his debut album was released on CD, exclusively with his own compositions. Since the end of December 2017 his current album is available. Another one with popular cover songs is only available via online download. Alex is currently reaching more than 46 million views on his YouTube channel.
In his workshop, Alex will talk about his great passion: how to arrange a piece on a guitar, making it sound like a rock band or even as an orchestra. Alex is a sound innovator who can elicit as many different sounds as possible from all parts of his guitar. And if that’s not enough, then he gets help from his pedalboard. Of course, he will give you examples and, moreover, give all visitors the opportunity to ask any questions.
This young Polish composer and guitarist combines all his musical influences in the fingerstyle. They range from hard rock music to gentle classical music. He was a laureate of many prestigious competitions. His music consists on the one hand of fast and dynamic harmonies, on the other hand also of calm and peaceful passages, an effect of his thoroughly philosophical reflections. Janek accompanied guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel during his tour of Poland in 2017 and has already shared the stage with many international artists.
In his workshop, Janek talks about the music and its philosophical vein, which is clearly recognizable in it. He will talk about his way of composing and how he has worked out his own musical language. At any time underlaid with music examples and of course the opportunity for the audience to ask questions. Bring your questions and experience this young artist from close up.
