Marko Erdevički (Norway)
Classical Guitar Artist
Faculty at Bergen Kulturskole
It was an honour to have in my workshop Marko Erdivicki. He was nice and polite arranging a date in advance. He was enthusiastic about playing my historic guitars: Franciso Ortega 1872, Benito Campo 1840 on a reproduction of Aguado’s Tripodison.He enjoyed all of them but Francisco Ortega 1872 was his favourite. Actually, Antonio de Torres Jurado had restored a guitar of Francisco Ortega owned by Tarrega which later on belonged to Federico Cano. Marko’s taste for Torres is clear.
Marko also tried my last two classical guitars “Elite & Premium”, both adapted to the tendency of current guitarists looking for a higher volume and power, very much the Spanish style.
But, as a lover of historic guitars and Torres sonority the one he loved most was my classical Realejo guitar model made of an unique piece of quilted mapple wood with harmonic ports. I designed and constructed this guitar after the particular specifications by a guitar concertist. Its sound is warm, sweet and colourful.
