Michael Lorimer: Classical Guitar

Michael Lorimer, a favorite protégé of Andrés Segovia, caught the attention of American audiences in the early 1970s and his popularity soon extended beyond the shores of America. The first American guitarist invited to perform in the USSR, he also has appeared in Israel, Cuba, throughout Europe, and on most major North American recital series and stages.

At the same time that Michael Lorimer is an enthusiastic exponent of new music and of traditional classics, he is also the first world-class guitarist to regularly feature the baroque guitar in recital. Forty years ago, long before the present vogue in original instruments, Michael Lorimer was a pioneer bringing attention to the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century predecessor to the modern instrument, and brought to light a milestone of the guitar repertoire, the best surviving collection for any instrument of early eighteenth-century Spanish dance music, when he published a detailed study and facsimile of the Saldívar Codex No. 4, a large, hitherto anonymous manuscript from a private collection in Mexico.

In addition to concerts, Michael Lorimer gives master classes at North American universities and conservatories from coast to coast. He is an engaging spokesman in demand for experimental programs in arts presentation. He lead the guitar department at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and many of today’s American performers and teachers studied with Lorimer, including Christopher Parkening.

"Michael Lorimer is one of the most talented young guitarists of these times and is the one I appreciate the most." - Andres Segovia
