Stephan Schmidt

The German-born guitarist, Stephan Schmidt, received a classical training at Trossingen, Paris and New York (crowned by his winning of First Prize for Interpretation at the Thirtieth International Guitar Competition organised by Radio-France in Paris in 1988). Later his artistic work was decisively influenced by his meeting with the composer Maurice Ohana and his discovery, in 1983, of the latter's music for tenstring guitar. [+]
