ZAGREB GUITAR TRIO
Darko Petrinjak István Römer Goran Listeš
Zagreb Guitar Trio was founded in 1984 and grew into one of the most renowned Croatian ensembles. In unchanged formation since the beginning, they play regularly throughout their native Croatia and in many European countries. They made a number of recordings and have recorded extensively for the Croatian Radio. Their wide repertoire embraces numerous works spreading from the renaissance to avant-garde and includes the original 19th century guitar trios, attractive transcriptions and new works.
Many of the new pieces were written for and dedicated to the Trio by some of the best-known Croatian composers as well as by international composers such as Duarte and Blake Watkins from Great Britain, and Koshkin from Russia. An interesting feature in some of the Trio's concerts is the use of the double-bass (played by Darko Petrinjak).
All members of the Zagreb Guitar Trio also pursue individual solo careers as performers, recording artists and pedagogues. Petrinjak and Römer teach at the Music Academy in Zagreb and Listeš at the Academy of Art in Split.
The trio and its members received several awards for their artistic achievements and recordings.
