Notes and Editorial Reviews

Using custom re-fretted guitars, Mak Grgic revolutionizes the standard repertoire with Renaissance & Baroque historical tunings, and premiering newly commissioned works that explore notes that have, quite simply, never been heard on the guitar before. Mak Grgic has been described as “imaginative, gifted, and expressive” (NY Times) and a “guitarist to keep an eye on” (Washington Post). His wide-ranging repertoire includes avant-garde, film, and popular musical styles while still retaining great classics for the instrument. As Young Artist in Residence at The Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, Grgic co-founded DC8, Da Camera’s contemporary music ensemble that was called an “inspiring addition to the contemporary music landscape in Los Read more Angeles” (LA Times). Grgic received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University for music and Performing Arts of Vienna, and his Doctoral Degree at the USC Thornton School of music. He is on the faculty of MSMU in Los Angeles, holds Artistic Directorships of Zagreb Guitar Festival, the interdisciplinary arts festival Bilijke I Svirke in Croatia, and serves as Artistic Advisor of Hong Kong International Guitar Festival.
