Young artists are as always at the heart of IGF’s work. Their Young Artist Platform offers much needed opportunities for young guitarists in the early stages of their careers. Awardees are offered concerts at IGF’s festivals that season as well as workshops and mentoring, and participate in IGF’s outreach work in schools.
The Double Cup Duo, formed by Ernest Syrota and Sofiia Matviienko, is an enchanting guitar and flute duo that came into existence in 2023 at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music. Hailing from central Ukraine, they both share a profound appreciation for the intimate and expressive nature of sounds and colours in music. This shared passion has inspired them to explore the fusion of various instrumental variations, including alto, piccolo, and baroque flute, across different epochs of music. Their performances are marked by a captivating sense of mystery and artistry. With grace and skill, Double Cup Duo aims to transport audiences into the realm of classical music. Their repertoire, ranging from original compositions to thoughtfully crafted arrangements, encompasses the diverse styles and periods that shape the rich history of music.
