Fabio Zanon is one of the pre-eminent guitarists of today. A guitarist, author, conductor, teacher and broadcaster, he has sought to expand the perception of the guitar in the concert scene. Recent awards include a Latin Grammy nomination for Francis Hime’s Guitar Concerto with the São Paulo Symphony and the Bravo! Prize in Brazil as “Best Classical CD of 2010”. A Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, he has performed more than 40 different works for guitar and orchestra, and his chamber music partners range from the most traditional to the most adventurous.
Born in Brazil, he started his musical studies with his father and completed his education at the RAM in London. His main teachers were Antonio Guedes, Henrique Pinto, Edelton Gloeden and Michael Lewin, and he also attended the Julian Bream master classes in London. His career took off after he won the first prize at both major international competitions, the GFA Competition (USA) and Tarrega Competition (Spain).
