Ana Vidovic is an extraordinary talent with formidable gifts taking her place among the elite musicians of the world today. She is known for her beautiful tone, precise technique, well-defined phrasing and thoughtful artistry and musicianship.
She comes from the small town of Karlovac near Zagreb, Croatia and started playing guitar at the age of 5. At age 7, she gave her first public performance, and by the age of 11 she was performing internationally. She became the youngest student at age 13 to attend the prestigious National Musical Academy in Zagreb. Ms. Vidovic’s reputation in Europe led to an invitation to study with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory from which she graduated. Ms. Vidovic has won an impressive number of prizes and international competitions including first prizes in the Albert Augustine International Competition in Bath, England, the Fernando Sor competition in Rome, Italy and the Francisco Tarrega competition in Benicasim, Spain.
A La Guitarra California fan-favorite, her international performance career includes frequent recitals, concerto engagements and festival appearances in most of Europe’s cultural destinations. Her tours have also taken her to Australia, Brazil, Israel, Japan, Korea and Mexico. Equally impressive is the fact that she has recorded 6 CDs.
