“A grande dame of the guitar” - Les Cahiers de la Guitare (France).
In a career spanning more than three decades, recitals and concert tours have taken Canadian guitarist Vincea McClelland across five continents, from the Beijing Concert Hall to Stockholm’s Music Museum, from the Teatro Juan de Vera in Argentina to the Théâtre Villette at the Paris International Music Fair and the Rideau Chapel of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. She has been a featured soloist at many international guitar and music festivals such as the CBC/McGill Concert Series in Montreal, the Classical Guitar Festival of Great Britain at West Dean, the International Festival of Castel Gandolfo in Rome and the 10th International Strings Festival in Morocco.
Vincea’s playing has been consistently praised for its virtuosity and clarity, “dynamic style” (Rome Daily American) and remarkable tone described as “luminous” (Guitares, Belgium), “pristine” (Halifax Chronicle Herald, Canada) and “golden…heavenly” (Dorset Guitar Society, England). She has recorded for television in Canada and Germany and for Radio France, CBC Radio-Canada and Chinese State Radio.
Vincea’s CDs are widely acclaimed for their high quality, energetic musicality and beautiful sound, and are regularly reviewed in international magazines in France (Guitare Classique), Belgium (Guitares), Italy (GuitArt), Germany (Staccato), Poland (Swiat Gitary), Britain (Classical Guitar Magazine), Canada (WholeNote) and the USA (Soundboard/GFA).
