Event description

Description

Referred to as a refined and elegant musician with a clear trajectory to stardom, Martha Masters is active as a solo recitalist, a chamber musician, an educator and promoter of guitar music around the world.

Recent performances in concert series and festivals have taken her from China and Europe to South, Central and North America. Masters first CD, Serenade, is now in its second printing and her Naxos recital disc sold over 10,000 copies worldwide in the first year of its release. She has released further CD’s and has published books with Mel Bay and Alfred. In 2000, Masters won first prize in the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) International Solo Competition, including a recording contract with Naxos, a concert video with Mel Bay, and an extensive North American tour. That same year she also won the Andres Segovia International Competition in Linares, Spain, and was a prizewinner or finalist in numerous other international competitions.

In addition to being on the guitar faculty of California State University Fullerton and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Masters is also President of the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA), dedicated to supporting the instrument, its players, and its music throughout the world.

Masters received both her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory, where she studied with Manuel Barrueco, and completed a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Southern Californiaas a student of Scott Tennant.

“Dynamically supple… vivid and assured… graceful performance.”
