For the first time in far too many years in my opinion, Melrose features a guitarist, who happens to one of the finest of his generation, and the first on his instrument to earn the Artist Diploma from the Julliard School in New York. Based in Edinburgh, he has recorded four acclaimed CDs, and performed throughout Europe, the United States and South America, including at such prestigious venues as the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City, and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the Southbank Centre and the Wigmore Hall in London.
We are privileged to welcome him to humble Melrose! He says, “My overriding approach to music is to learn and discover as many musical styles and composers as possible.”
For this recital, entitled 'Pãssaro de Madeira', he will present “the rich musical culture of Latin America, the warmth of the region's composers, performers and people, and the creativity that has found an active voice in the guitar.”
