Francesco Buzzurro: Award Winning Classical Guitarist

Francesco Buzzurro: Award Winning Classical Guitarist: Libertango

Miche Archetto recommended this video on guitarist Francesco Buzzurro- Thank you Miche!

Excellent playing here by Francesco, who is a highly awarded classical guitarist.

Interestingly enough, I just had a guitarist in my studio yesterday that played this same Godwin guitar. It’s not acoustic at all, the sound you are hearing is all electric (good sound huh?). The guitar even has a USB port to plug directly into the computer.

Well back to Francesco- here’ s a short biography:

“Francesco Buzzurro’s lifelong privileged connection with guitar started at the tender age of six when his father gave him his first guitar, which will then lead him to study classical guitar. After earning his Diploma at “Conservatorio Bellini” in Palermo, he continues education with courses held by Aldo Minella and Oscar Ghiglia. He perfected himself at the “Arts Academy” in Rome under the guidance of Stefano Palamidessi and some big concert performers like David Russell, Alberto Ponce, Hopkinson Smith and John Duarte. After taking his Degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, he started an intense concert activity that brought him to travel all over the world: from America, to Greece, to Germany, to Spain and Turkey. As a classical guitarist he won three national concerts: the “Città di Alassio”, the “Benedetto Albanese” in Caccamo, Sicily, and the “Savona in Musica”. On top of his studies of classical music and of his passion for folk music, he soon develops an interest in jazz music, which bring him to graduate in Jazz Music with Honorable Mention.” read more
