Profile Information

About me:
Classical Guitarist Stanley Alexandrowicz is internationally renowned for his thrilling virtuosity, poetic interpretations, and refined musicality. In addition to his command of the instrument’s standard repertoire, he has premiered and commissioned over 100 works by composers from Europe, Asia, the United States, Cuba, and Latin America.
A scholar and specialist in the field of 19th Century music, he often features unknown compositions by the Romantic guitar composer-virtuosi, playing on period instruments and revitalizing works which have lain dormant (often in manuscript form) for over a century. He has given lecture-recitals internationally on both Romantic and Contemporary music, including the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton – USA), the International Guitar Research Centre (University of Surrey – UK), the Baltimore Museum of Art (USA), and, the Harp-Guitar Foundation of America.
In addition to his work as an international soloist, he collaborates regularly in chamber music performances with some of the world’s leading musicians ― including internationally renowned soprano Dominika Zamara ― bringing together the worlds of opera, lieder, song, and contemporary music in realizations of unmatched sonic beauty and deep musical intelligence. Their duo debut CD “Ivan Padovec: Music for Guitar and Soprano” was issued on SHEVA Collection Recordings Italy (http://www.shevacollection.it), summer, 2015.
Performance highlights during recent concert seasons include London, New York, Venice, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, and Princeton, and include the U.S. premiere of Vácav Kučera’s Concierto Imaginativo-Homenaje a Salvador Dali for guitar and string orchestra (Baltimore) in honor of the composer’s 80th birthday year.
Dr. Alexandrowicz is currently Artistic Director of the New York Classical Music Society (NYCMS), and Artist-Professor at the Alion Baltic International Music Festival & Academy. He has served as Professor of Guitar at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), Director of the Bronx House Music School (New York), and has been on the faculty of Mercy College, New York (where he additionally taught music history, theory, form and analysis, and ear-training skills). A world- renowned pedagogue and “master teacher” he is an expert on guitar ergonomics.

Thanks for the nice words. I have been so busy with other things (baroque guitar tablature, for example) I haven't had a chance to add more to the Marco dall'Aquila site.

Hi Stanley,
thank you for the offer to be your friend. I just came from concerts and teaching Mexico, where I got position to be guest profesor in Guanajuato for some next years (my main work is docent of guitar of Janacek Academy of Mudic, Brno) . There I saw some "vihuelas" played by mariachi and seems to look exactly with the same body and size as renaissance guitars (or vihuela). I did few pictures of it for my guitar history book, what I will finish soon. Best regads Vladislav

Hi Stanley:
Its great to hear from you and to know you have been so succesful. I don't remember if you attended the concerts by Lyona Boyd, Eliot Fisk Scharon Isbin and Manuel Baruecco. I met Michael Newman and his wife in the '90.s.. I believe it was around 1973 when I met you. I lost most of my vision and had to retire early from the Times.
I look forward to your discussions .
Best wishes,

Hi Stanley:
Sorry to hear about your guitar. I do hope you get it back. Your name sounds familier. I use to live in Englishtown, NJ. Does the NJ Classical Guitar Society sound familier ? We sponsored Manuel Barueco in 1976, Freehold,NJ
Juan Sotomayor.
