Stephen Robinson, guitar
A top prize winner in five international competitions with eight acclaimed CDs to his credit; in the words of Andres Segovia, "a magnificent guitarist."

"One of America's great guitarists, a performer of brilliance, elegance, and lyricism."  Soundboard

Heralded by The New York Times for his "effortless virtuosity with intelligence and good taste," by The Tallahassee Democrat for his "sweet, pure sound, technique to burn and strong sense of musical and poetic phrasing," and by (Puerto Rico's) El Nuevo Dia as a "magnificent North American guitarist, full of virtuosity, magnificent technical precision, and a masterfully delivered diverse range of sound," Stephen Robinson tours extensively as a recitalist, chamber musician and orchestral soloist. He has appeared as guest soloist with orchestras including the Cincinnati Symphony and Boston Pops Orchestras, and conducts master classes at leading musical institutions and festivals worldwide.

Mr. Robinson's recordings for Clear Note Records, Centaur Records and Lakeside Records have received unanimous critical acclaim. Of his disc, Stephen Robinson, Munich's Fonoforum states, "A guitarist of the first order  Robinson fills the melodic lines with a great individual emotion." His solo CD, An American Record, features the debut recording of works by Samuel Adler, Harold Blanchard and Harold Schiffman, which Soundboard calls "masterful and poetic." Robinson's release on Clear Note Records, Felicidade, is an eclectic mix of music. Soundboard's Richard Long writes, "Stephen is a guitarist who invariably reminds me of why I fell in love with the guitar many years ago; to put it simply, he plays beautiful music, and he plays it beautifully." And Steve Marsh of Classical Guitar said "Occasionally a CD comes along in the review stack in which the featured performer immediately stands out from amongst the others for their sheer musicality, technical virtuosity and 'listenability' factor  and this new release from North American guitarist Stephen Robinson is such a CD."

Clear Note Records has just released Robinson's newest CD, Découpage, a collection of works spanning nearly three centuries, combining recent jewels with timeless standards. Steve Marsh of Classical Guitar notes, "This CD has to be one of the most attractive ones I've listened to in quite a while. Robinson's musicianship is of the highest calibre, his effortless technique allowing him the freedom to do with this music just about anything he wants and what he does do is exceptionally good from every angle. This is music making of high order."

A top prize winner in five major international competitions, including the XXIII Concours International de Guitare in Paris and the VI Concurso Internacional de Guitarra in Venezuela, Mr. Robinson is an alumnus of the distinguished Affiliate Artists Touring roster and a member of the State of Florida Touring Program. He has received numerous awards, fellowships and grants, including two National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalists Awards, an NEA Recording Award, and a Fulbright Fellowship for Performance and Research in Music to Canada.

A native of New York, Stephen Robinson began his guitar studies with Bruce Holzman at Florida State University, and worked closely with Andrés Segovia, who called him "a magnificent guitarist, one of the most brilliant guitarists of our times." After pursuing graduate work at the Yale School of Music, Florida State University awarded Robinson the first Doctor of Music Degree in Guitar Performance.

Mr. Robinson is Professor of Music at Stetson University in Florida, where he is the founding director of the Guitar Program (since 1983). He resides in DeLand, Florida with his wife, Patrece, and together they have raised four sons.
