Adelaide joins 115 other cities in 54 countries as part of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network, including 2016 Adelaide Guitar Festival artist Francisco Bernier’s home town of Seville, the first ever UNESCO City of Music to be designated.

Slava Grigoryan has again compiled a world-class and eclectic lineup of talent in this, his fourth year as Artistic Director of Adelaide Guitar Festival. The 2016 program reveals a diverse and culturally rich selection of artists. It is the breadth, creativity and calibre of guitarists in this year’s program that perfectly reflects why Adelaide was named as a UNESCO City of Music. The Adelaide Guitar Festival has gained an international reputation as a prestigious and successful event that showcases both Australian and overseas talent. Beethoven once said “the guitar is a miniature orchestra in itself”– this gives us all some insight into the talent needed to hone the beautiful craft of playing guitar. Enjoy these masters at work.

Welcome to the 2016 Adelaide Guitar Festival. The South Australian Government is proud to support this truly unique, internationally renowned festival, now in its 6th iteration. This year’s program boasts some of the best guitarists from around the world, across many genres of music. The Guitar Festival provides a strong platform to build on our recent placement as a UNESCO City of music, and shines the spotlight on South Australia, as the Festival State, all year round. A new exciting element to this year's program is Guitars in Bars and other places, which will see live music performed in venues across our city and state from 15 July – 10 August. I look forward to joining with you, as we celebrate the world’s most popular instrument.

DOUGLAS GAUTIER AM CEO & Artistic Director Adelaide Festival Centre

THE HON. JACK SNELLING Minister for the Arts

This year, our Adelaide Guitar Festival stretches into new territory: throughout the city, across artforms, into ideas and musical adventures. I am so excited to be bringing together world-leading artists who traverse many genres, to be exploring the nexus of health and music in our new Resonance program, and to be working with Adelaide’s own world-class musicians. Our brand new venture Guitars in Bars and other places involves hundreds of local musicians in venues across the state, and we have a broad range of films, free talks, workshops and displays by instrument makers throughout the festival. See you there! SLAVA GRIGORYAN Artistic Director

We would like to take this chance to acknowledge this is the traditional land of the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today. The Kaurna people are the Traditional owners of the land on which the Adelaide Festival Centre is located.

ADELAIDE PREMIERE

Punch Brothers made a grand impact on Adelaide in 2012. Four years on, and with a fresh Grammy nomination for their latest record The Phosphorescent Blues, they have taken their deserved place amongst the most respected ensembles in American music. The quintet’s deep focus on the texture of each song has produced a body of work at once filled with the rich whiskey and rye flavour of traditional bluegrass, and a wonderfully impassioned, celebratory upbeat contemporary sound.

Live per for mances by MARIA BERMUDEZ & FLAMENCO ARETI

Born in 1947, Paco de Lucía’s world was filled with the sound of guitar, the rhythm of flamenco. It burrowed itself deep within him. His unparalleled passion and discerning love for flamenco sparked a powerful reimagining of the style beginning in the ‘70s, which flowered across the world. Two years after Paco de Lucía’s death in 2014, his son - filmmaker Curro Sánchez - comes to Adelaide to present

the Australian premiere of the award-winning documentary about his father’s life. Sánchez’ film looks back at significant moments and places of Paco de Lucía’s career up to the recording of his final album. This special event will include a Q & A with Curro Sánchez, as well as live flamenco performances by dancer Maria Bermudez, direct from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain and local Flamenco favourites Flamenco Areti.

LORD BYRON'S

D O N J UA N S C I N T I L L AT I N G R O M A N C E , PA S S I O N , HUMOUR AND INTRIGUE

Image: David Kelly

Written and directed by TAMA MATHESON Starring TAMA MATHESON and KARIN SCHAUPP

Lord Byron’s self described ‘epic satire’ of Don Juan transforms the legendary womaniser into the one easily seduced. Reimagined by writer and director Tama Matheson with soloist Karin Schaupp, it is an extraordinary interlocking blend of music, poetry and extracts from Byron’s own intriguing and scandalous life.

Karin Schaupp interweaves solo guitar music from Turina, Pujol, Tàrrega and more with Matheson’s performance, resulting in an adventurous musical, theatrical and literary experience filled with love, hilarity and high drama. It becomes almost impossible to distinguish the poem from real life stories.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

This conversation will explore the inner workings of the artistic process – particularly the similarities and differences that lie between an act of creation and an act of interpretation – tracing the patterns and rhythms that are found in every artistic endeavour. How does a musician find the voice of a composition? How does a writer find the voice of their own imaginings? American poet and Pulitzer Prize winner Archibald MacLeish once observed, “the poet’s labour is to struggle with the meaningless and silence of the world until he or she can force it to mean; to knock upon silence for an answering music.” Join us as Slava and Anna talk about their formative years, reflecting on those moments that led to their success and revealing what’s behind their most defining works. Discover how they make the work they do, what inspires and drives them, and find out more about the mystery and power of human creativity.
