Mesmerising Guitar

Fiori are delighted to welcome young Scottish guitarist Ian Watt to inaugurate their new 'Artists to Watch' series.

Noted for his ‘exceptional range of timbre’ BBC Music Magazine, Watt’s international prizes include 1st prize at the Heinsberg International Guitar Competition (2011), Germany, 1st prize at the Westphalian Guitar Spring Competition (2010), Germany, 2nd prize at the Parkening International Guitar Competition (2009), USA (often described as the world’s most prestigious) and 2nd prize at the Vienna ‘Homage to Karl Scheit’ International Competition, 2010. In addition to performing, he is a committed teacher who has given masterclasses throughout the world and is at present a lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

‘…he sounds completely at home whatever century or style he is playing in. He is technically assured, thoughtful, unpretentious…his phrasings, colours and characterisations are a match for anyone.’ Music Web International
