Exhibition
« Ilse & Nicolas Alfonso »


SUNDAY 22 APRIL 2018 – 16:30

Created by Nicolas Alfonso in the 1960s, the Alfonso Method, which comprises two volumes, is still very much in current use. Published in six languages, it enjoys a worldwide reputation. This conference provides an analysis of this method, goes back to its origins and development and considers the future of this educational reference tool.

FROM FRIDAY 20 TO TUESDAY 24 APRIL 2018

Supported by documents and exceptional archives, this exhibition traces the life and work of the legendary couple Ilse and Nicolas Alfonso, both on stage and in real life. Virtuoso guitarists, they performed to great acclaim in the top international venues and recorded numerous solo and duo albums. Both professors with renowned reputations, they opened the first guitar classes in the Belgian Music Academies and in 1965, supported by H.M. Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, inaugurated the guitar class at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, thus becoming the de facto founders of the Belgian Guitar School.
