JEFFREY MCFADDEN

Over the last twenty years Jeffrey McFadden has established himself as the pre-eminent Canadian guitarist of his generation. Concert engagements have taken him throughout Canada, the United States and into Europe. He has been a featured performer at several international music festivals, including Guitar ’87 and GuitarFest ’91 in Toronto, the Guitar Foundation of America Convention, Gitarren-Symposium Iserlohn, Lachine International Guitar Festival, the Columbus Guitar Symposium, the Niagara International Chamber Music Festival, the National Flute Association (USA) Convention, the Festival Mediterraneo della Chitarra, the Acadia Guitar Festival and others.

In 1992 Jeffery McFadden was awarded a silver medal in the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America Competition and was also a prizewinner in the 1993 Great Lakes Guitar Competition. His début recording was the first in the Laureate Series on Naxos and was released worldwide. Since its release this recording has sold in the tens of thousands of copies. His playing has received enthusiastic critical acclaim; London’s Daily Telegraph wrote “McFadden’s ability to make the guitar sing is second to none”, and Classic CD has described his playing as“major artistry”. ClassicsToday.com raved about McFadden’s recording of concert works by Napoléon Coste saying, “Jeffrey McFadden is not only an extraordinary guitarist—he’s also an inspired musician.”

Many noteworthy events have marked the past few seasons in Jeffrey McFadden’s career. He has had the opportunity to work under the great Pierre Boulez in a performance celebrating the awarding of the Glenn Gould prize to Boulez. McFadden has also been counted among the most important guitarists of his day by his inclusion in the Maurice Summerfield lexicon, The Classical Guitar, Its History and Players. More recently he formed—along with American guitarist and composer Andrew Zohn—Duo Spiritoso, which has been hailed as one of the best new guitar duos in the world.

Jeffrey McFadden has collaborated with Canada’s most prominent musicians and composers including Norbert Kraft, Robert Aitken, John Beckwith and R. Murray Shafer. He is frequently heard on CBC/Radio-Canada and NPR in the United States both as soloist and ensemble player. He has given masterclasses and seminars at some of North America’s most prestigious institutions including the Université de Montréal, Conservatoire de Musique à Hull/Gatineau, University of British Colombia, Michigan State University and the Oberlin College Conservatory. He is a lecturer in guitar at the University of Toronto.
