Come on a journey with the celebrated classical guitarist and early musician Morgan Remaj through a myriad of 17th and 18th centuries treasures played on an historical 14 string theorbo, in addition to hearing the cosmopolitan and colourful collection of classical guitar solos from 20th century France, Japan, England and much more. This solo recital will also feature the world premiere of a piece of new music for the guitar by Basel based composer, Jöelle Götz.
Born in Perth Western Australia, Morgan Remaj has made a promising career as a classical guitarist and early musician. Appearing as guest artist at numerous festivals such as the Black Wood Chamber Music Festival, the Villers-Bretonneux Festival and the Brighton Early Music Festival in the UK, Morgan is a frequently performing soloist in continental Europe. His interest in contemporary music has led to frequent collaborations with European based composers such as Jöelle Götz. In August 2019 he played a series of concerts in Perth and Bridgetown for the W.A. Classical Guitar Society and the Bridgetown Guitar Festival. He has been a finalist twice at the WAAPA Warana Concerto Competition in 2016 and 2018 and was a prize winner at the 2019 Melbourne International Guitar Competition.
Morgan began his studies at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2014 with Dr Jonathan Paget. Prior to completing his Bachelor of Music degree in 2018, Morgan was engaged as a student of Judicael Perroy, at the Conservatoire Rayonnement de Aulnay-Sous-Bois during the 2016-2017 academic year, and then at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music during 2017-2018. He is currently completing his master in guitar at the Höchschule für Musik Basel with Pablo Márquez along with specialist conducting studies under Rodolfo Fischer. Morgan is also a lute student of Peter Croton and Julian Behr at the leading early music institute, Scholacantorum Basiliensis.
