Guitarist Pavel Steidl on the Canadian tour

“Here was a guitarist who knew how to laugh with the music and share the joke with his audience. But behind the entertainer lies a serious artist… Never was a standing ovation more richly deserved. Pavel Steidl had won the hearts and minds of a capacity crowd.“
- Classical Guitar magazine

Pavel Steidl was born in Rakovník, Czech Republic. Since he won first prize at the Radio France International Competition in Paris in 1982, he has become one of the most widely celebrated soloists in the world. Among the members of the jury in that competition were such artists as Alexander Tansman, Antonio Lauro and Maria Luisa Anido.

Pavel Steidl studied with Milan Zelenka and Štěpán Rak in Prague.  In 1987 he emigrated to the Netherlands, where after years of studying and gaining inspiration from many different artists, he created his own style, incorporating an authentic way of interpretation of 19th-century guitar literature on periodic instruments.  In 2004 he moved back to the Czech Republic, and since 2015 has taught at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, and the Conservatoire in The Hague .
