Laura Metcalf and Rupert Boyd

Rupert Boyd, Guitar

“Remember the name Rupert Boyd. While there may never be another classical guitarist like Segovia, this young Australian left his Marlow Guitar Series audience with the impression that someday there may not be the likes of him again, either.”
- The Washington Post

Australian guitarist Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation. He has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative”, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.” He has performed throughout North America, Europe and Australia, including at New York’s Carnegie Hall, the 92nd Street Y, Merkin Concert Hall and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (the world’s largest gothic cathedral). His solo CD Valses Poéticos received the following review in Soundboard, the quarterly publication of Guitar Foundation of America: “Boyd’s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone . . . musically and technically flawless . . . [the Granados is] one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar.” www.rupertboyd.com
