Christoph Denoth (guitar)

Christoph Denoth was born in Basel, Switzerland, and spent an important part of his early life in the Swiss mountains. His extraordinary musical talent became apparent early on, at which stage he already loved the guitar. He began his concert career at age 15. His studies of the classical guitar led him to the conservatories of Lucerne, Basel, and Zurich. He attended master classes with Pepe Romero and others and trained as a soloist with Oscar Ghiglia at the Basel Musikakademie.

He regularly performs as a soloist with chamber orchestras and ensembles such as the Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain (Peter Maxwell Davies) or the Offenburger Streichtrio, and at international music festivals such as that of Schleswig-Holstein. He has also performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall in New York, at the Berlin Philharmonie, and at the Salzburg Mozarteum. He recently performed the Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo in New York and made his BBC Proms debut in London in 2013.

Christoph Denoth endeavours to expand the tonal and dynamic range of today’s concert guitar and bring it to the attention of a wider audience. Sergiu Celibidache, with whom he studied Phenomenology of Music and Conducting, exercised an enormous influence on Denoth, who has since conducted a number of orchestras, notably in Basel.

Denoth has won several international awards, including prizes at the 35th Concours International de Guitarre de Paris (1993), sponsored by Radio France. As an acknowledgement of his contribution to music, he has received important grants from the Louise Silverberg Foundation in St Moritz, the Werner and Helga Degen Foundation, and Pro Arte, Switzerland. In 2008, he was awarded the UBS Culture Award for Music.

Christoph Denoth is considered one of the foremost guitarists of the younger generation, much praised for his rich sound and musical expression.
