Since the 1970s, Peter Finger has gained a remarkable international reputation as an acoustic guitarist, making him one of the best guitarists in the world in the trade press (and those who have heard one of his 13 publications agree). Finger has done what few artists today can do: the perfect harmony between musicality, composition and virtuosity.
His musical world is limitless and shows his deep knowledge of music, its history and art in general. An attentive listener will find in Peter's music influences of Debussy, Ravel or Stravinsky, but at the same time he can also find more typical skirt melodies or be surprised by new rhythmic and melodic solutions.
Character with great musical charisma and at the same time with the simplicity typical of great artists, he offers a truly extraordinary show in which impressive virtuosities are proposed with extreme naturalness and in which great technique is only a means to convey his refined musical universe. His music for guitar is able to surprise and inspire the listener with original and brilliant compositions, performed with a breathtaking technique and exceptional musicality.
Finger's new era is the combination of neoclassical taste sounds with improvisations of jazzy, new era, blues or South American rhythms and melodies, but above all the musical representation of atmospheres full of positve images and emotions that are able to evoke the most intense moments of everyone. Like many of his colleagues, he is inspired by a multitude of influences: from classical music to jazzy, from rock to experimental and innovative languages for the six-string instrument.
His artistic maturity and undisputed personal style contribute to making his concerts a unique and fascinating listening experience.
