Grammy Nominee

"[He has brought] revolutionary change to playing the guitar… an amazing clarity and a huge dynamic range I have never before heard from any guitarist." The Times - London

Paul Galbraith first won public acclaim in Great Britain when at the age of 17 his performance at the Segovia International Guitar Competition won him the Silver Medal. Segovia, who was present for the competition, called his playing "magnificent."

Galbraith’s unique playing position was first revealed in Edinburgh in 1989. His guitar is supported by a metal endpin which rests on a wooden resonance box. The eight strings and unique design of his guitar effectively increase the instrument’s range and possibilities to an extent never before possible. This has enabled Paul to make his unique transcriptions of Bach’s six Violin Sonatas and Partitas for guitar. His flawless technique and impressive interpretations of these works are sure to make this release a Delos favorite with all lovers of fine music.
