Music and passion
Filip Alilovic (born 1989) is a Croatian classical guitarist, music teacher and composer, living in Dortmund/Germany.
As a child of Croatian emigrants, he came into contact with the music of his country of origin and "Western" music at an early age. After an early musical education, he received private lessons in Dortmund and continued his guitar training with Prof. Frank Gerstmeier, which he completed in 2011. He received his compositional and music theory training from several lecturers, including Reinhard Michel and Professor Werner Seiss.
In his younger years, Alilovic’s stage program consisted mainly of his own works. A number of sponsoring associations and cultural organizations have promoted his artistic work and educational path. As well as guitar, he composes for a range of ensembles and instruments. His writing style is characterized by the lively mix of older and modern composition techniques. He has also arranged, for the classical guitar, works by other composers, including the famous Toccata and Fugue by J.S Bach and the string sextet concerto "Souvenir De Florence" written by Pjotr Iljitsch Tschaikovsky.
He worked together with several internationally renown artists. His Videos are published also by Siccas Guitars and Resonant Connections Media.
All of his chamber music and guitar works are published in the publisher house of Bergmann Edition, based in Kalunborg/Denmark
