Concert of Tilman Hoppstock

  • by

The guitar concert of Tilman Hoppstock was a spectacular event in the spectacular venue of the Baroque Refectory at the Dominican Convent. Hoppstock played pieces from different composers and few of his own compositions (program see below). He earned an almost never ending applause and gave three encores. A great part of the audience were guitarists themselves and students of the Hamu (Academy of Performing Arts in Prague).
