Unfortunately, the "Salzburg Guitar Trio" could not travel to Tübingen this year; the planned concert will be postponed to the 2021 edition.

Thank you very much that the excellent guitarist Mateus Dela Fonte will accompany us this year. As an internationally award-winning and recognized guitarist, Mateus Dela Fonte is not only a brilliant and breathtaking concert artist who has already released several CDs, but also an inspiring university lecturer with several successful students who themselves win prizes in international competitions. The most fascinating thing about him, however, is his modesty and his almost philosophical way of life. The facts that he is a great expert in his field, that he is interested in many other subjects, that he speaks several languages and has traveled the world does not affect him, because he believes there are more questions in all subjects, including music as having answers.
