Biography

(1990 – present)

The Zagreb Guitar Quartet was founded in 1990 by Ante Čagalj, one of the leading guitar teachers in Croatia. Čagalj assembled the Quartet from his students and he is still the ensemble’s artistic director. The Quartet’s current members are Tomislav Vasilj, Krunoslav Pehar, Melita Ivković and Frane Verbanac.

This experienced ensemble of young musicians has given a multitude of concerts in Croatia and in other countries, from Canada to India , from Russia to South Africa – including appearances at the Austrian Parliament in Vienna, Pontificio instituto di musica sacra in Rome, Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Kamani Auditorium in New Delhi, Teatro Verdi in Trieste and Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow. It has successfully appeared at several prestigious international competitions, winning first prize at Trofeo Kawai in Tortona, Italy (1996) and at Simone Salmaso in Viareggio, Italy (1998), as well as the Grand Prix at the Ghitaralia Festival Competition in Przemysl, Poland (1998, when Zbigniew Dubiella wrote in Swiat Gitary: For more than few years I haven’t heard something so exciting - after their performance, all that one could do was to get out and scream: Viva guitarra!). At the Varaždin Baroque Evenings in 1998, the Quartet won the Ivan Lukačić Award for the best performance of the festival.
