The classical guitarist from Heidelberg is one of the outstanding figures in modern guitar music. The 32-year-old, who studied with Alvaro Pierri and Roberto Aussel, has won numerous national and international competitions. He works as a conductor and professor and is on the international circuit, including Latin America, as a chamber musician and a soloist.
His love for South American guitar music is also the focus of his debut album. With “… e dois amores,” Christian Wernicke engages in a lively discussion with the rich musical heritage and the cultural identity of the continent. He interprets Brazilian waltzes, fiery sambas and Argentinean tangos with a great deal of style. Whether it be a strictly rational approach or voluble opulence, Christian Wernicke makes the listener part of the inexhaustible rhythmic and harmonic formal language of these guitar worlds, which he presents on his instrument with great zest. This all makes “… e dois amores” a wonderful musical experience – like a summer night under an enchanting star-spangled southern sky.
