About the artist
Hailed as one of the elite classical guitarists in the world today, Ana Vidovic is recognized for her beautiful tone, impeccable technique, well-defined phrasing, and soulful musicianship.
Her international performance career includes frequent recitals, concerto engagements and festival appearances in most of Europe’s cultural destinations including Amsterdam, Brussels, Budapest, Copenhagen, London, Oslo, Paris, Rome, Salzburg, Vienna, Warsaw and Zagreb. Her tours have also taken her to Australia, Brazil, Israel, Japan, Korea and Mexico. Equally impressive is the fact that she has recorded 6 CDs. Mel Bay Publications has released Ana Vidovic’s DVD entitled “Guitar Artistry in Concert,” a journey through the music of Torroba, Piazzolla and Pierre Bensusan, Sergio Assad, Stanley Myers, Villa-Lobos and Agustin Barrios Mangoré, as well as “Guitar Virtuoso,” a performance of works by Bach, Torroba, Paganini and Walton.
Born in a small town near Zagreb, Croatia, Vidovic is a former child prodigy who was performing internationally by the age of 11 and became the youngest student to attend the prestigious National Musical Academy in Zagreb at the age of 13. After gaining acclaim across Europe, Vidovic was invited to study at the Peabody Conservatory with legendary guitarist Manuel Barrueco.
