More About Eduardo Fernández


Born in 1952 in Uruguay, Eduardo Fernández is recognized as one of today’s leading guitarists. Fernández won the first prize of the 1975 Andrés Segovia Competition in Mallorca (Spain). His New York debut in 1977 won critical accolades, being described as “A top guitarist…Rarely has this reviewer heard a more impressive debut recital on any instrument” (Donal Henahan, The New York Times). His London debut, in Wigmore Hall (1983), was equally acclaimed and resulted in his signing an exclusive recording contract with Decca, a label for which he made 18 recordings (solos, and with the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Philharmonic). He is actually the exclusive recording artist of the Oehms Classics label, for which he has recorded the complete lute suites by Bach and “Romantic Guitar” a 19th-century guitar recording on a period instrument.
