Jonathan Fitzgerald’s #guitar music on #neuguitars #blog #JonathanFitzgerald

Praised for his “impeccable tone” and performances filled “with passion from the start to the end,” American-born Australian classical guitarist Dr Jonathan Fitzgerald has garnered international recognition as a performer and educator. Maintaining a career at the intersection of performance, teaching and artistic research, Jonathan heads the guitar program at the University of Western Australia’s Conservatorium of Music, where he oversees one of the most active guitar studios in the country. Jonathan’s artistic interests are diverse, ranging from traditional classical guitar repertoire to experimental works for electric guitar. Past projects include a residency at the National Trust of Western Australia, funded by a major grant from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The residency culminated in two sold-out concerts at the historic East Perth Cemeteries, featuring a world premiere performance of an eight-movement work commissioned by the Trust. Entitled “Sound from the Ground,” the project won the Museums and Galleries National Award for Interpretation, Learning & Audience Engagement, and was a finalist for the 2017 WA State Heritage Award. More recently, Jonathan undertook Electroluminescence, a commissioning project which culminated in an immersive multimedia concert of new works for electric guitar, electronics, and visual projections. Presented by Tura New Music as part of the 2022 Fringe World Festival, the concert was hailed as “nothing less than heroic in proportion…and an important contribution to the repertoire of audio-visual works for electric guitar. It is well-established that Dr Jonathan Fitzgerald is a virtuosic talent in the guitar world.” (X-Press Magazine)
