ABOUT Marcin Dylla


Hailed by The Washington Post as "among the most gifted guitarists on the planet," Polish guitarist Marcin Dylla is a rare phenomenon in the recent history of classical guitar. Born in Chorzow in 1976, he received his first guitar lessons at the Ruda Slaska Music Conservatory in his native Poland. From 1995 to 2000 he studied at the Music Academy of Katowice with Adi Wanda Palacz and later completed his studies with Oscar Ghiglia, Sonja Prun-nbauer and Carlo Marchione at the Music Academies of Basel, Freiburg, and Maastricht, respectively.

Marcin has received an unrivaled number of awards at the most prestigious international music competitions around the world, including 19 First Prizes from 1996-2007. His last triumph was the Gold Medal of the 2007 Guitar Foundation of America International Competition in Los Angeles, often acknowledged as the most prestigious guitar contest in the world.

In 2006, Cecilia Rodrigo, daughter of the legendary Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo, chose Mr. Dylla to perform the world premiere of a recently discovered guitar work by her father, entitled "Toccata" (1933), at Reina Sofia Museum of Modern Art in Madrid. In 2002, at the 7th International Guitar Convent in Alessandria, he was granted a "Gold Guitar" musical critics' award for the best young guitar player.

During the 2008-09 season, Marcin toured over 50 cities in North America, Mexico, and Canada. He also recorded a recital video for Mel Bay Publications and a CD for Naxos that reached the Naxos "Top 10 Bestselling Albums" in September 2008. His live recital DVD "Wawel Royal Castle at Dusk" was nominated for the 2010 Fryderyk Award (equal to American Grammy) in the category of Solo Classical Music Album of the Year.

Dylla has performed as a soloist with the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as many other international orchestras. He has served as faculty in residence at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and is currently a Professor of Guitar at the Music Academy in Katowice and Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster.
