Sean Shibe was the first guitarist to be selected as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, and his breath-taking rise to acclaim has been acknowledged with major awards from the Royal Philharmonic Society and Gramophone magazine. His recent disc of Bach has been described as the finest ever recorded on guitar, and his performance of Steve Reich’s classic work, Electric Counterpoint, astonished the composer. Incomparably gifted and blessed with a spirit of adventure, Sean Shibe is a guitarist like no other.
“Shibe’s music-making is masterful, beautiful and convincing in every way”
