Chosen twice in 1982 by Andres Segovia to perform in master-classes in Geneva and in New York, the guitarist and lutenist Richard Savino has enjoyed considerable distinction as a player, with early triumph in the Artists international Carnegie Recital Hall Début Competition, the first solo guitarist to win this honour. An active accompanist as well as soloist, he performs regularly with singers Paul Hillier, Susan Rode Morris, Judith Nelson and Susan Narucki. His recordings include the first period instrument versions of Luigi Boccherini’s Guitar Quintets, Mauro Giuliani’s Grand Quintetto and Johann Kaspar Mertz’s Bardenklange, all of which have received great critical acclaim. In 1995 a duo recording with British violinist Monica Huggett, featuring virtuoso sonatas by Paganini and Giuliani, was released. Richard Savino has appeared on the CBS and PBS television networks, has been heard “in recital” on National Public Radio’s Performance Today, Morning Pro Musica, Off The Record, England’s BBC and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Music from Montreal and Music from Vancouver programmes. Since 1987 he has directed the CSU Summer Arts Guitar and Lute Institute and in 1996 he will be a contributing author to the Cambridge University Press Studies in Performance Practice series. He is responsible for editing the complete works of Fernando Sor for Editions Chanterelle and a collection of madrigals by Francesca Caccini for Indiana University Press. In recent years he has been a featured artist and faculty member at numerous festivals throughout the United States of America and Europe and has recently been named Visiting Artistic Director of the 1995 Aston Magna Academy at Rutgers University and Coordinator of Performance Practice at the Monadnock Music Festival in New Hampshire. Richard Savino has studied with Oscar Ghiglia, Eliot Fisk and received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from SUNY at Stony Brook where he studied with Jerry Willard. He is at present Professor of Music at the California State University at Sacramento.
