We are pleased to announce that the world premiere of the 1st EuroStrings composition contest winner “Les Arcanes”, composed by Nicolas Kahn (France), will take place on Thursday, April 18th at the Musikverein, Vienna during the International Guitar Festival Rust in Austria.

This prize-winning work, a set of miniatures, Sergio Assad, a EuroStrings ambassador and member of the competition jury, describes as appealing ‘directly to our subconsciousness as classical guitarists. This set of miniatures echoes sounds that are embedded in our memories.
