2018-11-18 Sean Shibe - London (UK)

Post by Francesco Mariani » Sun Sep 02, 2018 5:38 pm

Stoke Newington Guitar Festival is proud to welcome Sean Shibe, who gives the final concert of the weekend on Sunday 18th November 2018 at 7.30pm.

Sean Shibe is now established as one of the foremost guitarists of his generation. His approach to the traditional classical guitar canon avoids cliché and challenges all preconceptions.

In 2017 Sean Shibe's debut solo album release on Delphian Records was met with critical acclaim and won him a nomination in the BBC Music Magazine Instrumental Award category. Dreams and Fancies is a recording that explores the fruits of Julian Bream's history of commissioning in the 20th Century alongside music by Dowland and was named Editors Choice in Gramophone as well as BBC Music Magazines Instrumental Choice.
Alongside the success of his recording debut, Sean Shibe's uncompromisingly monumental project softLOUD premiered at the East Neuk and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, a revelatory programme juxtaposing Jacobean lute music for classical guitar, with electric guitar arrangements of multi-tracked repertoire including US Pulitzer prize winning composers Julia Wolfes powerful elegy LAD, (originally written for 9 bagpipes) and David Langs Killer.

Born in Edinburgh in 1992 of English and Japanese heritage, he studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and with Paolo Pegoraro in Italy. At the age of 20 he became the first guitarist to be selected for the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme, and the only solo guitarist to be awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. He was a YCAT artist between 2015 and 2017.

Sean will be playing J.S Bach's Prelude, Fugue & Allegro as well as Lute Suite No.2. Also on the programme are John Dowland, a selection of Scottish Lute music and Villa-Lobos. I will update this post once I have the final programme!

Privilege to hear Sean last night at The Old Church. A great space for a classical guitar concert. Really exciting player who communicates so much in his playing.
