Australian guitarist Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation.
He has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Spain, Italy, France and Australia and has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative” and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.”
Rupert Boyd’s debut recording Valses Poéticos received the following review in the UK magazine Classical Guitar: “The performances that Boyd gives here are first-rate . . . Even the Bach is one of the best of its kind.” Soundboard, the Guitar Foundation of America’s quarterly publication, gave the CD the following review: “Boyd’s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone . . . musically and technically flawless . . . the album is first-rate.” Soundboard also described the eponymous work by Granados as “one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar.”
In addition to winning the Andrés Segovia award from the Manhattan School of Music, Rupert Boyd was a winner of the Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Eisenberg-Fried Concerto Competition, the latter of which resulted in a performance of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Leighton Smith.
Rupert Boyd holds a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) degree from the Australian National University School of Music, a Master of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and an Artist Diploma degree from the Yale University School of Music. His major teachers have been Timothy Kain, David Leisner and Ben Verdery.
Rupert Boyd currently resides in New York City. He is represented in North America by Dan McDaniel, LLC and exclusively plays D’Addario strings.
