Guest performance for the Sydney Classical Guitar Society ~ An invitation to perform a mini recital ~ Nov 01, 2008
The concert hall was a familiar one. I have been watching concerts at the Performing Arts Centre at Holtermann St, Crows Nest for years now.
I also perform there once a year as part of the Sydney Eisteddfod Classical Guitar Competition (McDonald?s Performing Arts Challenge.)

But this time it was different. I was invited as a guest of the Sydney Classical Guitar Society (SCGS) after being awarded First Place in the Open Age Classical Guitar, Sydney Eisteddfod. Mr. Raffaelle Agustino, the SCGS Artistic Director approached me with the invitation to perform.
For many years, the SCGS has been providing concert performance opportunities for winners of the competition, while the event is sponsored by Gareth & Karin Koch.
Also invited were classical guitarists Peter Boyd and Daniel Nistico (Boyd-Nistico Duo), winners of the Performing Arts Challenge ?Guitar with Chamber Music (Open Age).?
Daniel Nistico is also the first guitarist since Simon Powis to reach the finals of the Nelson Meers Foundation Instrumentalist Scholarship at the Performing Arts Challenge.

A special guest was Columbian classical guitarist Luis Yesid Mesa Zabala. He beautifully played works for Gentil Montana and Carlos Farinas.

Also exciting were the CGS Ensemble and the CGS Orchestra, both conducted by classical guitarist, teacher and composer Warwick Payne. Warwick has a great sense of humour and a good stage presence, and he easily engages the audience with his spirited approach to music.
Warwick has been playing the guitar for 20 years. When he was 16 he commenced lessons with classical guitarist and teacher Mr. Greg Pikler at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music from which he graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Performance with Distinction.
I first saw him perform in 2003 at a Pavel Steidl?s masterclass at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Aside from his regular performances in Sydney as a solo artist and with the band "Little Things", Warwick currently run a company called ?Suite Music Productions?. He offers professional quality sound recordings with the convenience of traveling to where you are and recording on-location (Contact Warwick Payne on 0403 661 062 or .)

The first time I performed at the Sydney Eisteddfod was in July 2003, entering both 16/U and Open Age events; Philip Houghton was the Adjudicator then and awarded me a Highly Commended in the 16/U. I was surprised and happy at the same time.
In the Open Age, and from a total of 33 performers coming from all over Australia, Joseph Littlefield took out the First Prize on that long competition night.

My choice of the program for the SCGS concert wad based on my competition?s, except I performed the whole ?Fall of Birds? instead of the Tocatta alone, and added an additional piece, Rodrigo?s Sonata Giocosa, 3rd mov.
I came across Sonata Giocosa being performed by Roman Viazovskiy (A video on his website.) As far as I know his interpretation of the music is the best I?ve heard.
I was also fortunate to watch Roman performing in Heinsberg Germany in May 2007. His concert was on the last day of the Heinsberg International Guitar Festival & Competition (Sonata Giocosa was one of his Encore pieces.)
