Since making his debut in November 2005, Scottish guitarist Ian Watt has toured throughout Europe, the US and China. His recitals have included performances in venues such as the ‘Schubert Hall’ (Vienna Concert House), St John’s Smith Square (London), and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Watt has also appeared at several leading international music festivals including the Mikulov International Guitar Festival (Czech Republic), London International Guitar Festival, Sound Festival (Aberdeen) and Big Guitar Weekend (Glasgow).

An advocate of contemporary music, Watt has collaborated with a number of composers including Gordon McPherson, Rory Boyle and most recently John McLeod whose Guitar Concerto, written for and dedicated to the guitarist, Watt premiered in March 2010. Watt has also performed for Sir Peter Maxwell Davies as part of the composer’s 75th birthday celebration concert series (2009) held in Glasgow, performing Davies’s rarely heard song cycle for voice and guitar, Dark Angels.

In addition to performances on BBC Radio, Watt featured in a BBC documentary that included a performance of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez. His performances have also been broadcast on television and radio in the USA, Austria and Holland. Ian Watt attended the City of Aberdeen Music School and currently is a student of Allan Neave at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

"...This is an excellent recording, in every sense."
