19:00 Jan Depreter (Belgium) and Yamandu Costa (Brazil)
Famous guitarists Jan Depreter and Yamandu Costa will perform various works by Bellinati, Bogdanović, Bach and others. Born in 1975 (Belgium), Jan Depreter is considered one of the most remarkable guitar players of our time. Discovering music at the age of 5, Santa Claus introduced him to his first guitar 3 years later, resulting in a lifelong passion for the instrument and its music. He has been a featured soloist all over the world, playing and teaching at prestigious music festivals in the U.S.A., the U.K., China, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Holland, Ukraine, Poland, Portugal and Belgium, where he founded the Antwerpen Gitaarfestival & Competition in 2010. Yamandu Costa began to study guitar at age seven with his father, Algacir Costa, leader of the group Os Fronteiriços (The Frontiersmen) and mastered the instrument after studying with Lúcio Yanel, an Argentine virtuoso who lived in Brazil. At age fifteen, Costa began to study southern Brazilian folk music, as well as the music of Argentina and Uruguay. Influenced by the music of Radamés Gnattali, he began to study the music of other Brazilians, such as Baden Powell de Aquino, Tom Jobim and Raphael Rabello. At age seventeen he played in São Paulo for the first time at the Cultural Circuit Bank of Brazil; the concert was produced by Study Tone Brazil. Costa's diverse styles include chorinho, bossa nova, milonga, tango, samba and chamamé. Costa appeared in Mika Kaurismäki's 2005 documentary film Brasileirinho.
