Hear music and interviews from the world's leading guitarists, lutenists, string players, and related disciplines. The show explores mostly the world of the guitar, and mostly nylon-stringed styles like classical and flamenco, but whenever possible we explore the lute, orchestral strings, piano, and others. Really the show is about craft. Learn a little about music, get great practice advice, and glean wisdom on all aspects of professional musicianship. All Strings Considered is the best way to check out new music and (almost) meet your favorite musicians.

Guitar Foundation of America 2013 (Part II)
In this second installment of highlights from the 2013 Guitar Foundation of America Festival and International Concert Artist Competition, All Strings Considered brings you music from the solo and chamber music concerts, a mini-lesson from a pair of the technique workshops, and some exciting and newly discovered projects from David Chapman and the guys behind Seconda Prattica. You’ll have a chance to listen to lots of new music, new arrangements, and strikingly original interpretations from Rovshan Mamedkuliev, Laura Young, Zoran Dukic, Scott Tennant, and Aniello Desiderio, along with several All Strings Considered exclusives featuring live performances and previously unreleased recordings of Marcin Dylla, Les Freres Meduses, and the Tantalus Quartet. I felt amazingly rejuvenated and inspired by the end of this year’s GFA in Louisville. So if you couldn’t quite make it to the festival, this episode will most certainly help fill that void. Although you might not quite make it to the end, as it’s quite likely you will find yourself needing to hit pause in order to go play your guitar.

Guitar Foundation of America 2013 (Part I)
This year’s Guitar Foundation of America festival and International Concert Artist Competition was held in the lovely city of Louisville, Kentucky and hosted by the University of Louisville School of Music and Dr. Stephen Mattingly. The GFA, now close to its fortieth year in existence, presented an awe-inspiring week of concerts, lectures, classes, and of course, one of the most prestigious competitions in the world. It was a joy to meet so many people dedicated to furthering our art form, so many excellent performers, scholars, and teachers, not to mention partaking in the excellent after-concert hangs sampling bourbon at Dish on Market! Perhaps unsurprisingly, there is simply too much information to share in the span of a single All Strings Considered episode, and so this will be the first of a two-part series. This episode focuses on the past, present, and future of the Guitar Foundation, as well as a few special moments paying tribute to another forty-year legacy: Bruce Holzman’s incredibly influential career in teaching. Finally, All Strings Considered has been given a special dispensation to play you some live excerpts from the competition finals – you’ll hear select pieces from Chad Ibison (bronze), Artyom Dervoed (silver), and Anton Baranov (gold).
