Acknowledged as “A forerunner in the new generation of classical guitarists” (BBC Radio), Michael Christian Durrant continues to establish himself as one of England’s finest and most creative young musicians. He enjoys a busy performance schedule, with concerts ranging from intimate solo recitals to large-scale concerto performances.
Michael performs regularly across the UK, and recent sell-out concerts for King’s Lynn Music Society, Somerton Arts Festival, and Winchester Cathedral are a testament to his musical ability and rising popularity. A dedicated chamber musician, Michael also collaborates regularly by performing and recording with a diverse range of artists; including the violinist Alexander Markov, the pianist Nico de Villiers, and the flamenco guitarist Samuel Moore.
Michael studied classical guitar with Maestro Carlos Bonell, professor of guitar at the Royal College of Music (RCM), London and Maestro Giulio Tampalini at Accademia della Chitarra di Brescia in Italy. He studied full-time as a master’s student at the RCM and was awarded an MSc with distinction in 2018. Notably, Michael was the first classical guitarist to be awarded a master’s studentship from the RCM and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), covering his full tuition fees and living expenses throughout the duration of his studies at the College.
Highlights for the forthcoming 2019/20 Concert Season include Michael’s most extensive international solo tour to date, a performance of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Romancero Gitano, Op. 152 in the Cayman Islands, and a performance of Joaquín Rodrigo’s Fantasia para un Gentilhombre in Berlin, Germany.

  • For a moment, I thought I was in a castle... One of the great versions with an expansive and intimate tempo. Reminds me of the Segovia touch.

    • justino justino his tempo is where all the trouble lies. Too slow
