Repertoire:

Solo and Concertante Renaissance to Contemporary

Praised for the “dynamic intensity, sensitivity and passionate conviction” of her playing, classical guitarist Christina Travlopoulou has been very highly acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.  With a diverse repertoire of solo and concertante works from the Early Baroque to the dawn of the twenty-first century, she has performed throughout Europe, the United States, Brazil and Japan, including concerts in the Mostly Haydn Festival, Aspen Music Festival, London’s Roundabout Guitar Series, Rotterdam Biennale of Contemporary Music, 2005-2006 Deutschland in Japan, I Festival International de Violao do Brazil and ArtLine Japan Music Series, as well as at celebrated venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Duke’s Hall and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and Tokyo’s Yamaha Hall and Casals Hall.

Among her awards and honours are the 2001 New York Artists International Alumni-Winners Award and the 1999 Artists International Special Presentation Award, the Fulbright Award, the Onassis Foundation Scholarship and The Juilliard School Fellowship. In her recordings and concert repertoires, in addition to Baroque, 20th and early 21st century masterworks, very often premiered are young composers’ avant-garde and experimental works, many of which have been dedicated to her.     

Christina Travlopoulou was born in Athens, Greece; studied with Kyriakos Giorginakis at the National Conservatory of Athens and Evangelos Assimakopoulos at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory where she received her “Soloist Diploma” with Highest Honours.  In 1995 she entered the Royal Academy of Music, in London, where she studied with Timothy Walker and distinguishably in master classes with Julian Bream and John Williams.  A Fulbright Scholarship awarded in 1997 brought her to Juilliard School where in 1999, and under the tutelage of Sharon Isbin, she graduated with a Masters of Music Degree. Furthermore, Ms Travlopoulou is a Kapodestrian University of Athens graduate, in Political Science.

Critical Acclaim

“...This CD could easily be a reference for any guitarist interested in the interpretation of contemporary music as a result of Christina Travlopoulou’s impeccable performance and Japanese label ArtLine Records' superb production.....Christina Travlopoulou reminds me of Bream and Williams; as being a joint composer of these works, reveals not only her own interpretative graces but each work’s deepest qualities: exquisite and virtuosic Ginastera’s Finale, mesmerizing and Zenish Takemitsu’s All in Twilight, enchanting Musgrave’s Starlight on Compostela and, last but not least, paradigmatic as well as unrivalled in technique and structure Tzanou’s Solo...”

 

JAZZ AND JAZZ  MAGAZINE

 

“…She is absolutely convincing on her sense of structure… solid on her playing, imaginative on the variety of her sound. Complete familiarity with and great usage of avant-garde techniques on the guitar, as well as great ease in changing interpretative styles, make her performance of such demanding of technique and style works utterly mature.”

 

DIONYSSIS MALOUHOS, ΑΩ MAGAZINE

 

 

“…She filled the Hall with the Nihilistic Image of Twilight….

Intelligently, skillfully and with fluency her brilliant performance made a powerful impact on the audience.”

 

GENDAI GUITAR MAGAZINE, Tokyo

   

 

… a new golden era brought to New York from talented Greek artist.

 

TO VIMA, Athens

 

 

“Greece’s best ambassador.” 

 

THE NATIONAL HERALD, New York

 

 

“A buoyant mood showing a unique feel for interpretation… Very successfully achieved

a specifically Baroque performance style through this innovative, effective choice of instruments during the recent Carnegie Hall concert which received a standing ovation.”

 

ARTS & CULTURE, New York

 

 

Fascinating! She bewitched each one of the 300 people being her audience.

 

GREEK NEWS The Greek-American Weekly Newspaper, New York

 

 

Juilliard’s Greek Jewel.

 

THEMA MAGAZINE, New York

 

 

“A gifted guitarist of a highly intellectual level; brightness, clearness of sound and brilliance characterize her performance!  But for me the most important is the capacity she has of building musical phrases by using an unrivalled way to extract them from the structure of the composition that she performs.”

 

ATHANASIA TZANOU, IRCAM Paris

 

 

“An excellent classical guitarist who speaks with absolute normality the contemporary music language. !!Bravo!!”

 Christina Travlopoulou​&Go Nagano
on six and eleven string guitars

2001: Duo Debut in Carnegie Recital Hall, New York

 

Repertoire:

All-Baroque Program, All-Bach Program,

All-Chopin Program

CD Recordings: "...Chopin Works" AMLP-10602

Christina Travlopoulou and Go Nagano bonded together into a guitar duo since their studies at The Juilliard School, the common denominator being their mutual interest in early music masterworks that were not originally composed for the guitar. Thus, Christina on a six-string guitar and Go on an eleven-string guitar began making their own transcriptions of solo and concertante works from the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic Era, building this way a unique repertoire which they, always to high acclaim by audiences and critics alike, have presented in the United States, Brazil and Japan, at such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Tokyo’s Casals Hall and Yamaha Hall, and Brazil’s SESC Hall. The duo has been featured at the 1st Festival International de Violao do Brazil, ArtLine Japan Music Series, Augustine New York Guitar Series, Aspen Festival and the 2005-2006 Deutschland in Japan Festival among others.Their first CD, "...chopin works", is yet more proof of the duo’s commitment to expanding their innovative repertoire, further exploring previous periods and tapping evermore into their musical treasure-troves.

Critical Acclaim

The idiosyncratic sound of the guitar, especially on the Chopin Preludes, brings up a pleasant surprise. Their brilliant sound, interpretative clarity, virtuosity, good sense of rubato, avoidance of interpretive exaggerations as well as their very balanced ensemble make an exceptional CD recording. 

 

ΑΩ MAGAZINE, Athens MARCH 2008

 

 

 “If Chopin had heard this magnificent performance on two guitars, he would thereafter have composed only for guitar. Melodies are falling like “raindrops,” indeed, from the strings.”

                                                                        

GO KATO, Haiyuza Theatre Company, Tokyo NOVEMBER 2006

 

 

 

The sound of the guitars, so colorful, filled the stage with lyricism”

IL TEATRO MAGAZINE, Tokyo 2006

 

 

 

“Christina Travlopoulou (6-sting guitar) and Go Nagano (11-string guitar) effectively showed us new images of Bach performance practice on two guitars. Both of the artists possess superb musicianship and are unquestionably virtuoso performers. Their repertoire of Renaissance and Baroque music is extraordinary.”

GENDAI GUITAR MAGAZINE, Tokyo DECEMBER 2005

 

 

 

A new golden era brought to New York from these talented young artists.”

TO VIMA, Athens 2004

 

 

 

“…Fascinating! They bewitched each one of the 300 people on the audience.”

                                                       

GREEK NEWS, the Greek-American Weekly newspaper, New York 2003

 

 

 

“Showing a unique feel for interpretation the duo very successfully achieved a true Baroque performance style through their innovative and effective choice of instruments in a recent Carnegie Hall concert that received a standing ovation. A buoyant mood suggesting the fulfilled potential of these Young Artists Auditions Awards prizewinning guitarists…”
