Born in Moscow and raised in Australia, Andrey Lebedev is one of the most successful upcoming guitarists of this generation.

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
