Vincent Lindsey-Clark

English guitarist Vincent Lindsey-Clark made his performing debut at the Wigmore Hall, London in 1983. He became a member of the Segovia Trio in 1987 and currently performs with the Modern Guitar Trio. He has travelled extensively around the world performing his own music. His composition ‘Fiesta Americana’ was written for Berta Rojas, whose recording of the work was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award. In 2003 his work March on the Red Planet was performed by 100 guitarists at London’s Royal Albert Hall. During the 1990s he was a regular on-stage performer for the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden.

Vincent has been a regular tutor and performer at the Sydney Guitar Summer School in Australia and was invited to the Taranaki Guitar Summer School in 2016. In January this year he performed and was a tutor at the inaugural Nelson Classical and Flamenco Guitar Festival, New Zealand.

Vincent is well known for his compositions for the guitar. He writes music for both students and professionals, much of which, has been used extensively by the major exam boards and performed all round the world. He has also written two guitar concertos. Distinguished performers who have played his music include The English Guitar Quartet, David Russell, Gary Ryan, Craig Ogden, Amanda Cook, Detlev Bork, Davis Owen Norris, Roland Gallery, Roland Chadwick, Duolism, John Couch, Rachel Scott, The Agostino Duo and many more.

He currently has teaching positions at London’s Centre for Young Musicians, The University of Southampton and England’s most famous school, Eton College.

Lindsey-Clark seems to revel in the guitar’s most vital qualities. He uses dissonance only when needed and as with greats such as Maurice Ravel the form of these miniatures is always concise….
