One of the UK’s most leading and versatile guitarists
Graham's busy performing schedule includes concerto performances, recitals, session work and a rich variety of concert dates with numerous ensembles. Graham has established himself as a guitarist of the highest regard and as a result has been invited to play as a concerto soloist with many leading orchestras. 2012 sees Graham perform the world premiere of the Stephen Goss Guitar Concerto and Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez (both with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra). His solo and chamber concerts have taken him all over the world and have included extensive tours of America, Europe and Asia.
He began his initial studies with Richard Cobby at the Northampton Guitar Studios before going to the Royal Academy of Music where he studied with Hector Quine, Colin Downs, Timothy Walker and Michael Lewin. During his time as an undergraduate at the RAM he was already doing regular sessions for the BBC, playing for the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and performing concerts and radio broadcasts with the internationally acclaimed Carlos Bonell Ensemble. He graduated with honours from the RAM where he also won the Julian Bream Guitar Prize. He has established himself on the chamber and orchestral scene and has worked with the English Chamber Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia, Scottish Opera, Philharmonia Orchestra, Broomhill Opera, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra (Edinburgh Festival) London Sinfonietta (Patti Smith’s Meltdown) and BBC Symphony Orchestra (Last Night of the Proms). Graham also works with the Tetra Guitar Quartet with whom he has toured the UK, Europe, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Brunei and Malaysia. Tetra have also recorded for BMG, Conifer, Hallmark and Carlton record labels and regularly perform Rodrigo’s Concierto Andaluz with many top orchestras including the English Sinfonia and Bournemouth Sinfonietta. He also performs regularly with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra on his vintage 1920s Gibson Tenor Banjo!
He was made an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2001 for his distinguished work in the profession.
