Goran Krivokapic, born 1979, is one of the leading guitarists of the new, young international guitar scene. The reasons for this are not only his technical virtuosity, which sets new standards, but also his characteristical interpretation of old and new repertoire.
Apart from winning eighteen international competitions, he received several awards at the annual "International Guitar Convention in Alessandria”, Italy: 2005 as the best young guitarist of the year and 2006 for his debut CD "Best CD of the Year".
At age 14 he won his first competition, but his breakthrough came in 2004 as winner of the two most prestigious guitar competitions in North and South America ("Guitar Foundation of America in Montreal, Canada, and" Dr. Luis Sigall International Competition of Musical Performance " in Viña del Mar, Chile). Since then he has performed all over the world and plays as a soloist in the most prestigious halls such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Lubkowitz Palace in Vienna, Auditorio Conde Duque in Madrid...
As an artist, lecturer and adjudicator, he is a frequent guest at many international festivals and universities.
Goran Krivokapic's musical focus is on the development of new works for classical guitar, mainly through making his own transcriptions from the Baroque and Classical works, but also collaborating with contemporary composers.
Since 2010 he is working as a lecturer at the prestigious Koblenz International Guitar Academy, in which students get the opportunity to complete a post-graduate course of studies in his class.
