"A real musician, one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music and only this." - Roland Dyens

Croatian virtuoso Ana Vidovic's extraordinary gifts and engaging stage presence have made her one of the most significant classical guitarists to emerge in recent years. A child prodigy, she was performing internationally at the age of eleven, and at age eighteen won first prize in the highly prestigious Francisco Tarrega Competition in Benicassim, Spain. Her reputation in Europe resulted in an invitation to study with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory, from where she graduated in 2003. Ana Vidovic’s touring career has included recitals in New York, London, Paris, Vienna, Salzburg, Rome, Budapest, Warsaw, Tel Aviv, Oslo, Copenhagen, Toronto and many other cities. The video of her performance of Isaac Albeniz's Asturias at the New York Guitar Festival has received over six million views on YouTube.

"Ana Vidovic has become a major artist in the classical guitar world….She has a finely honed technique and a remarkable stylistic sensitivity...." -Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun
