When Pavel Steidl won the first prize at the internationally prestigious Guitar Competition of Radio France in Paris in 1982, the Czech guitarist got a rocket launch on his career. Today he belongs to the top layer of the world's great cheerful guitar virtuos, known for his expressive play, which is also reflected in both gestures and facial expressions.
After emigrating to the Netherlands in 1987, Pavel Steidl has consistently and purposefully continued to develop and process his very personal game. In particular, he has immersed himself in the nineties repertoire with composers like Legnani and Paganini who put extreme demands on technical perfection. He is also himself a composer. As one of the world's most outstanding guitarists, he has been touring and playing in more than forty countries, such as Canada, the United States, China, India, Japan, most countries in Europe, South and Central America.
With its personal way of meeting the audience, who rarely attracts laughter, a concert with Pavel Steidl is an experience that goes beyond the music. "He is a guitarist who likes to tell a fun story for the listener. But behind the entertainer there is a serious artist, "wrote Classical Guitar Magazine after one of his concerts.
Pavel Steidl makes a Sweden premiere at Uppsala Guitar Festival. He also gives a master class.
