St. Andrew’s Church, West Dean
Brazilian virtuoso, Fabio Zanon, is regarded as one of the pre-eminent guitarists of today. His diversified activity as a teacher, chamber player, conductor, author and broadcaster has contributed to increase the perception of the guitar in the wider musical scene.
As a soloist Fabio has played in more than 50 countries, at venues including Royal Festival Hall, Philharmonie in Berlin, Weill Hall at Carnegie and 92nd Y in New York, Tchaikovsky Hall, Les Invalides in Paris and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He has played over 40 concertos with orchestras from around the world, such as London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, São Paulo Symphony, Ulster Orchestra, Israel Chamber Orchestra, and I Fiamminghi,
Fabio is also recognized as a conductor and is perhaps the only guitarist who regularly performs as a soloist/conductor. He has directed the award-winning South American premiere of Michael Nyman’s opera The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat. As a broadcaster he has written and presented over 200 programmes for Radio Cultura in São Paulo.
Fabio is a Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, teaches regularly at the Master Guitarra Alicante in Spain and is the Artistic Director of the Campos do Jordão International Music Festival in Brazil.
