GUEST Artist

Matthew Sutton

본문 이미지 1

From a young age a passion and aptitude for the folk music of classical guitar has brought Matthew Sutton through many styles and disciplines of the instrument. Furthermore the academic critique and sharpened musical performance tools granted under the guidance of Gunter Herbig at the University of Auckland have not gone wasted in exploring his field to all corners. Today, after having had ten years of experience performing classical guitar at concerts, competitions and professionally at many various occasions, he brings to the hall a niche of style and skill that can only compare to those of few other guitarists in his field.Flamenco being the keystone of his work gives strength, power and rhythm to his technique while the study of music as delicate as baroque or as abstract as contemporary adds a balance that is easily palatable. The works of Manolo Sanlucar and Baden Powell which he will focus on in this concert have been carefully chosen to compliment his style for a special experience of the instrument.
