Japanese Classical Guitarist

"Advinanza de la Guitarra"


Listen to his Music HERE

Kazu Suwa is a Japanese Classical Guitarist based in London. Kazu studied classical guitar with the renowned classical guitarist Mikio Hoshido at the Nihon University College of Art in Tokyo and has also graduated from the prestigious Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid in Spain.

I recently came across his new recording "Advinanza De La Guitarra" - this offers some new-to-me music, rather than the familiar repertoire. I was particularly struck by the music of the Spanish Composer Angel Barrios. There is a link here to Kazu playing one of his pieces, Arroyos de la Alhambra: Evocacion here.

I was also not familiar with the works of Angel Barrios - any search for his music simply comes up with Agustin Barrios. I recommend spending some time listening to Kazu's YouTube channel. I've just ordered a copy of the Album so I can listen to the whole thing in comfort.
