WOLFGANG WEIGEL

Internationally acclaimed classical guitarist Wolfgang Weigel has been a unique ambassador for the instrument for over four decades. After completing studies at the music academies of Saarbrücken and Lübeck between 1970 and 1974, he dedicated himself to teaching and performing, and continued his studies with his friend and mentor Karl Scheit. In 1983 Weigel became a lecturer at the music academy in Münster, teaching there for 23 years. He has been invited to give masterclasses around the world, and has served on the juries of leading competitions including the Certamen Internacional de Guitarra Francisco Tárrega and the Guitar Foundation of America.

As a performer, Weigel has a vast repertoire, with his main focus since the mid-1980s being Spanish music of the post-Franco era. His friendship with composers such as Antonio Ruiz-Pipó, Carlos Cruz de Castro, Tomás Marco and Cristóbal Halffter, and his intrinsic understanding of their artistic intentions, have made him a valued interpreter, and he has had numerous compositions dedicated to him, including various concertos for guitar and orchestra and chamber music works.
