MATTHEW WADSWORTh

THE MILLER'S TALE
(STEPHEN GOSS)


You get the feeling that he’s playing for himself and for you, but not for a big public. Gestures are subtle, with an expressive range which flatters sophisticated ears… perhaps because he always plays from the heart, there’s an inner power and sincerity to his performances which make for compelling listening.
— International Record Review

Matthew Wadsworth has earned a reputation as one of the worlds finest lutenists. Working in the UK, Europe and North America as a soloist and chamber musician, he has appeared at most major concert halls and festivals, and can often be heard on radio, both in live performance and recordings.

Matthew was born in 1974 and studied lute at London’s Royal Academy of Music with Nigel North, after which he spent a year at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague. Matthew has recorded for Avie, Deux-Elles, Linn, EMI, Channel Classics and Wigmore Live.

His CD recordings have all received international critical acclaim, and have been featured as Gramophone Editors Choice on several occasions.
