Album Notes
Steven Walter is one of a few individuals in the world to be widely known as both a classical guitar builder and performing artist. These are not friendly realms; the demands of both lie in the hands and the building part can get pretty rough! Yet practice can make perfect. As a guitar builder he has made over 140 instruments which are prized by professionals, collectors, and students alike.

Among honors as a performer, Walter was a major prizewinner in the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America International Solo Competition in 1991, and was invited as guest soloist for the inaugural Sula Philharmonica concert in San Pedro, Honduras. In the U.S. he often performance concerts with his wife, soprano Kristen Walter, and continues to perform solo recitals and as orchestral soloist. Classical Voice North Carolina said, “…cool intellect and a virtuoso technique... a sound so appealing you have no idea how hard it is to create.”

After graduation from Augustana College, and graduate study at the Boston Conservatory he pursued rigorous technical study at Florida State University where he was also teaching assistant to Bruce Holzman for four years. There, he was awarded the Doctor of Music degree after extensive research on the composer Benjamin Britten. Walter’s treatise explored Britten’s Nocturnal for solo guitar and its relationship to the composer’s other works about night, sleep, dreams and death. Currently he records for the Sonari record label, which carries his debut recording entitled Steven Walter – Guitar, solo works by Turina, Sor, Assad, Bach, Brouwer and Rodrigo. A expert and widely heralded teacher, Walter has been on the faculty of Furman University since 1997, teaching guitar and music history.
