Description

The guitarist Augustin Wiedemann, a resident of Munich, was the 1992 winner of the 6th International Guitar Competition held in Havanna, Cuba. At this internationally famous competition, whose jury members included, among others, Leo Brouwer and Alvaro Pierri, he was also awarded four special prizes (including prizes for the best interpretation of Spanish music and for the best interpretation of Cuban music played by a foreigner). In the same year he was honored with the first „Cultural Award for young artists“ by the city of Deggendorf. From 2001-2004 Augustin Wiedemann was teaching at the Salzburg Mozarteum. In the academic year 2006/2007 he was teaching as visiting professor at the RoyalCollege of Music in Stockholm/Sweden. In Munich he was awarded the “Pasinger Kunst- und Kulturpreis” in 2008. He teaches as professor for guitar and chamber music at Stella Vorarlberg Privathochschule für Musik in Feldkirch/Austria.

Augustin Wiedemann performed as a soloist in most European countries, USA, South Corea, Russia and Cuba as well as with diverse orchestras including the “Members of the Munich Philharmonic” and the “South Bohemian Chamber Philharmony”. His chamber music partners include Anja Lechner (cello) and Patricia Kopatchinskaja (violin). Alongside his classical concerts, Augustin Wiedemann also plays in the crossover-project “Classic meets Soul” with jazz singer and guitarist Kosho (member of the most successful German Hip Hop/Rockband “Söhne Mannheims”). Frequently he is invited to be a jury member at international competitions such as "Concurso Andres Segovia" (Linares/Spain), "Concorso Internazionale Mottola" (Italy), "Anna Amalia Competition For Young Guitarists" (Weimar/Germany), "GFA Young Artists Competition" and others. 

Augustin Wiedemann´s CD´s „All in Twilight – Guitar Music of the 80´s“ and “4 Miles 2 Davis – Guitar music of the 90´s” appeared on Arte Nova (Sony/BMG) and received highest critical acclaim. “Bach meets Monk”, “324”and "Symphony" were released with wildner records.
