Mircea Gogoncea’s upcoming recital promises to be some trip – almost literally. The 24-year-old Romanianborn classical guitarist is coming to Israel next week to perform in this year’s Tel Aviv Guitar Week program at The Felicja Blumental Music Center in Tel Aviv. The festival kicks off today and runs until March 2. Gogoncea’s performance slot is on March 1, and he will give a master class the following day.
“I basically try to take my listeners on a trip around the world of music,” Gogoncea explains.
He says he wants to keep his audiences focused and attentive, and generally eschews formulaic programming.
