"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

Programme: Andrey Lebedev - Guitar

Born in Moscow and raised in Australia, Andrey Lebedev is one of the most successful upcoming guitarists of this generation.

Andrey Lebedev is a prize winner of the 2017 ARD Music Competition, regarded as one of the most prestigious international competitions in classical music.

He burst on to the international music scene in 2014 when he was invited by luminary guitarist Julian Bream to perform a London recital of solo music including new commissions by Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Leo Brouwer. The following year he worked with guitarist John Williams on a recital project of Australian chamber music which included the world premiere of ‘Gertrude Fragments’ by Brett Dean. He exhibits a ceaseless curiosity which has seen him develop projects ranging from duos on Renaissance lute to Radiohead arrangements on electric guitar.
