Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A graduate of the Music Academy of Zagreb, guitarist Zoran Dukic completed his studies at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne. He has won more competitions than any other guitarist in the world and is a strong advocate for these composers who hail from the Balkans.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The notes claim that guitarist Zoran Dukic has won more competitions than any other guitarist in the world, mostly between 1990 and 1997. Educated in Zagreb and Cologne (there under Hubert Kappel), he is Balkan to his core, and he has a natural feel for the rhythms and colors - harmonic and melodic - of this repertory. He is an energetic player. In slow movements he can be infinitely tender, and in the wildest of music he is never out of control. If you haven't yet caught the Balkan bug, this is an excellent introduction.
