Vladimir Gapontsev on SoundBetter

Hello! My name is Vladimir Gapontsev, I am a certified musician with a master's degree in guitar performance. I am a prize winner of many international competition and a semifinalist of Guitar Foundation of America competition in Los Angeles (2017).

Professional classical (nylon) and steel string guitar player.
Any style from baroque to hip hop!

I offer you an audio or video recording:

1) of any guitar piece or transcription in good performance and sound quality. Composers and arrangers often need this to promote their work. Solo, duos, ensembles.
2) of guitar parts in songs or instrumental music. If you need I can do a full guitar arrangement in any style.
3) of custom made riffs or loops for your song, composition beat or audiobook.

I also play mandolin and make custom guitar arrangements/covers of any style.

I can prepare your guitar music for publishing and the best guitar fingering possible.
Please write a message before ordering to work out the best result.

For most complex visual projects I have a professional videographer.
Please inquire.

    Vladimir is not only a very skilful musician but an artist: he plays with high precision and with inspiration as well. Everything seems easy and natural in his playing. In addition, excellent understanding of the mood of every tune;

    Hands down one of the greatest guitarists I've ever heard. Besides being incredibly talented, Vladimir is also very professional, dedicated, and kind.

    Already a long and exceptional collaboration with Vladimir; who has all musical and human qualities. The more you work with him, the more you learn about the guitar ... the more you can evaluate the rendering of your own music put in good hands. His last job was to record the guitar part of a violin + guitar duet: such a good and stimulating accompaniment for the violin player soloist!
    An exceptional partner.

    Vladimir is the most amazing concert guitarist I have ever heard. You should check out his videos on youtube! He did the job quickly-sooner than our agreed deadline- because he knew I was in a hurry too. His communication was great. I would definitely work with him again.

    Une fois encore Vladimir - qui est très occupé par ses concerts et ses master-class - réalise une excellente interprétation de cinq duos qui comptent beaucoup pour moi ; un partenaire résolument fiable et un musicien complet.

    I'm very well honored to have a virtuoso like Vladimir as a performer of my compositions. Very clean technic, subtility in the phrasing, extreme precision in the rendering of the mood. Thanks to you Mister Gapontsev!

    Vladimir maîtrise son instrument: même les tonalités (mes pièces utilisent les douze tonalités majeures) les moins guitaristiques (en guitare classique) sonnent très bien.
    Et l'interprétation sert la musique à ravir: avec précision, clarté, en "tempo giusto" et de bonne initiatives.

    Vladimir is a long-distance runner: for the fourth or fifth time in a couple of months, he made a perfect performance of my music for solo guitar. Same quality, rich timbre, equal tempo, singing phrasing. Fortunatly each time its something new to me ...

    Une fois encore Vladimir me permet d'entendre une excellente interprétation de pièces pour guitare "pas si évidentes" ... si bien que je ne pense qu'à continuer avec lui

    Once again, a beautiful work: my compositions for solo guitar are rendered with exactitude by a very much inspired performer

    N'est-il pas "contre-productif" de faire l'éloge de Vladimir? car il est un musicien sur lequel on peut compter en tant que compositeur et l'on voudrait le garder pour soi, tant il y a encore de belles choses à faire avec lui, grâce à lui. Je vais sans attendre lui confier un troisième travail.

    Vladimir is a reliable and inspired musician. A internationally acclaimed virtuoso like Arnaud Dumond appreciates his work.
