Event description

Description

We are thrilled to welcome world-renowned classical guitarist Álvaro Pierri to perform at Wentworth Villa. His program (TBA) will include works by Fernando Sor, Isaac Albeniz, Jacques Hétu, Dusan Bogdanovic and Alberto Ginastera.

Álvaro Pierri is internationally acclaimed as one of the greatest guitar masters of today. Press reviews around the world praise his “phenomenal virtuosity” … “breathtaking phrasing”… and the “unmatched sound colour spectrum that he creates on the guitar.”

Since his brilliant solo debut in New York and in Frankfurt with the Berlin Philharmonic String Soloists, he has been a celebrated guest at major concert halls, radio and TV in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Beside his guitar solo recitals, he has also shared the stage with such artists as Astor Piazzolla, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Leo Brouwer, Amjad Ali Khan, Cherubini and Ysaye Quartet, Yannick Nézet Séguin, and Charles Dutoit.

Several of his CDs have been honoured with prestigious prizes and awards. Recently Deutsche Grammophon re-published a DVD of Pierri performing in duo with Astor Piazzolla. Lately he has been recording at Abbey Road Studios for a new CD series for AlphaOmega – Hong Kong.

Álvaro Pierri was appointed in 2002 head professor at the prestigious Vienna Academy of Music, and in 2008 named Honorary Citizen of his hometown Montevideo, Uruguay.
