Host

Welcome to the very first groupmuse in DUMBO, Brooklyn. We are fortunate to have the world famous Nejc Kuhar performing. This is my first time hosting. I have attended several in Brooklyn Heights & Manhattan. I just opened up a retail store in DUMBO and I would love to make it a groupmuse location. The space is very warm and cozy, I tried to make it look like my own apartment. It is close to the A,C & F trains,2,3 and right off the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridge.

About Nejc Kuhar:

“Kuhar’s pieces were eclectic and fun…” (Washington Post)

“… Nejc Kuhar’s compositions have a strong personality and he plays them excellent. Bravo.”(Roland Dyens, guitarist/composer)

The international prizes, glowing reviews (Washington Post, Classical Guitar Magazine, Los Angeles Daily News etc.) and the very response of the audience at home and abroad all point to an artist in the round, successfully negotiating the joined path of composition and interpretation.

Nejc Kuhar finished his Masters degree in guitar at Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts with prof. Alvaro Pierri and his Masters degree in composition with Dr. Reiner Bishof and prof. Christian Minkowitsch at Konservatorium Wien, Privatuniversität, both with honours. In 2018 he started with Music Research PhD at Surrey university with prof. Steve Goss.

As a guitarist as well as a composer, he won numerous prizes (1stprizes in Germany, China, Italy, Turkey, USA, etc.), he was also scholarship holder of Slovenian Culture Ministry and of Gallus Foundation.

His music has been performed by himself and/or other musicians in various venues, including Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, Washington National Gallery of Art, Rachmaninov Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Slovene Philharmonic Hall, etc. His commissions include those by the Washington National Gallery of Art, Frankfurt Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, LiGITa, Hong Kong and Sarajevo Guitar Festivals, Signum Saxophone Quartet, guitarist Mak Grgić, organist Stephen Ackert, Four Aces Guitar Quartet and others.

Kuhar’s works have also been published by the renowned publishing houses, such as Les Production d’Oz/Doberman-yppan (Canada), Trekel (Germany) and Berben (Italy), some of which are recorded on his debut CD from ZKP Label, entitled “String modulations”, featuring guitar virtuoso Mak Grgić.
