We bring you the impressions of Filip Optołowicz:

It was a great pleasure to participate in Masterclasses organised by Pierre Bibault in Lahontan.

Lahontan is a great place, a peaceful village with very friendly and open people.

I had lessons with Bobby Rootveld, Nutavut Ratanakarn, Emiliano Leonardi and of course Pierre Bibaullt. Meeting and practising with those people taught me a lot.

It was a great experience and I’ll never forget amazing concerts they played each evening. Every concert was held in a different town, so it was really interesting that we could not only see Lahontan but also part of Nouvelle-Aquitaine – a beautiful region of France.

Once we also had a trip to Biarritz – a town located by the Atlantic Ocean. It is a wonderful place with amazing views.

At the masterclasses I met a lot of interesting people such as Alexander Kryuchkov with whom I played a duo at the last concert. This was a real teaching experience for me as I favour collaborative music above solo.

Our concert was received very well by the public and this gave us some serious motivation to further work. Due to it we are willing to meet again . This trip to France was a wonderful time spent with amazing people who I’ll never forget!

I express my gratitude to Pierre Bibault and the organizers of the Contest for the opportunity to participate in the LAHONTAN GUITAR International Festival as part of the prize fund (Filip Optołowicz).

We bring you the impressions of Maria Korzeniowska:

 Les Musicales de Lahontan- master class which took place in a lovely country town on the south of France – Lahontan, was a great experience for me.

Lessons conducted by a great guitarist – Pierre Bibault taught me a lot and they widened my musical horizons. Learning from this kind of musician is something priceless and I’m very grateful that I had this great opportunity to experience it.

The whole event lasted for a week and during this week there were two concerts. One was a concert of Duo Résonances www.duoresonances.com and the second one was a concert of the participants of the Master class.

Both took place in a beautiful, natural scenery. The audience was very enthusiastic, so it was a pleasure to play for them.

In addition to the musical value of this Master class, it was a great opportunity to learn a lot about French culture, taste amazing and delicious french and Basque food, sightsee the exceptionally beautiful views of the region, les Pyyrenees Atlantiques and le Pays Basque on the south of France.

The great people that I met there will stay in my memory and my heart for a long, long time! Thank you once again for this great prize!
