About Andrey

The ever popular Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo was played with absolute assurance and considerable poise by young guitarist Andrey Lebedev. What a fine young player he is, and if the amplification of his guitar was a touch loud, it merely revealed, with great impact, just how good his playing was

  • Transcribing keyboard music for guitar and accordion

    On Thursday I performed a new program with accordionist Iosif Purits at Kansas Smittys bar in London. For this program we transcribed and performed the first ten of Bach’s Goldberg Variations as well Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango. The project was particularly exciting because of the possibilities and contrasts available to both instruments. Both instruments have polyphonic capabilities, […]

  • Duo playing with Aleksandr Tsiboulski

    I have just returned from a ten day trip to San Fransisco, California where I was working on guitar duo project with Aleksandr Tsiboulski. As I’m based in London and Alex is in Adelaide, we thought California would be a mutually inconvenient place for us to put our heads down for a week and prepare […]

  • Brazil

    I have recently returned from two weeks in Brazil, where I performed and recorded for Guitar Co-op and Cultura Artistica. I was impressed by the sheer quantity and quality of live music in non-concert venues in Brazil (Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero to be precise). In London and Australia it is rare to see a context […]

  • Pablo Picasso and Harrison Birtwistle

    The fundamental breakthrough that helped me understand Harrison Birtwistle’s Construction with Guitar as a complete, unified piece of music, was seeing its historical context and all the Picasso work that directly inspired the composer. It’s not always possible to publish these pictures in a program so I’m delighted that I can put them all in one place on this […]

  • Thinking about structure in Muir Woods

    In preparing Takemitsu’s Muir Woods for a few recital recently, I spent time thinking about how the piece is put together, which helped me create a logic for how I then express/perform the music. Often I find understanding the structure a very helpful window into understanding what the composer is on about. In classical music this is […]
