The American Musical Instrument Society (AMIS) promotes better understanding of all aspects of the history, design, construction, restoration, and usage of musical instruments in all cultures and from all periods. In June 2022, their annual meeting was held at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre.
New Soundscapes on the “Ligeti guitar”: Chopin, Kurtág, and Saariaho (Lecture-recital)
Katalin Koltai is a PhD researcher and guitarist at the International Guitar Research Centre, University of Surrey, supervised by Stephen Goss. Her research expands the boundaries of the guitar’s idiom through arrangements, new music, and inventing a new magnet capo system and a guitar prototype: the “Ligeti Guitar.” Her scholarship include articles in Lute Society of America Quarterly and Soundboard Scholar, and the conferences of the Guitar Foundation of America, Royal Music Association, Royal Academy of Music, Dublin Guitar Symposium, and the 21st Century Guitar, as well as scores and CDs.
