  • For a brief period in the early 19th century, the guitar enjoyed a veritable hype. Salons in Paris and Vienna hosted musical soirees where the latest compositions were performed for an intimate audience.

    With your help an album can be produced recreating this unique 19th century guitar hype.

    Crowdfunding
    You can contribute to the world premiere recordings of pieces by guitar virtuosos Molino, Gragnani and Carulli, played on 3 original 19th century guitars by the most famous luthiers of the time. Other rarely heard pieces by Matiegka will be also released on the album.
    These pieces are a great discovery. Let’s make it possible to show these treasures to the rest of the world.
    La Guitaromanie will be released by Cobra Records, in very high audio quality.

    THIS is the crowdfunding link on voordekunst.nl

    Thank you!

    TRAILER

    The Folly Is a performance by Izhar Elias, Paul de Nooijer and Menno de Nooijer. Izhar plays the ancient chords of the Folia and other music on his guitars. Paul&Menno provide a surprising spectacle through projections.We see a temple, or rather a small temple. Well, is it actually a temple?The structure we see, also called a folly, was built purely for decoration in 19th-century gardens.As a passerby you were fooled (folly means foolish). Such a characteristic building is central to THE FOLLY.
    Is it a temple or the projection of a temple? Which guitarist is real and which is a life-size projection? What am I seeing? Is it real or not? What reality are we actually looking at? Projections on screens, sheets, smoke and bodies. Photo animations play a major role, but when do the photos turn into video or into reality?
