Frank Bungarten1Two-time Echo Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year Frank Bungarten is Germany’s leading classical guitarist. Being honored at an early age by legendary maestro Andrés Segovia unleashed the start of Bungarten’s international career. For almost four decades Bungarten has played countless concerts all over the world. Bungarten’s Bach transcriptions and his complete Villa-Lobos are long-established, bestselling classics.

As a passionate professor of guitar he teaches an elite group of international students, formerly in Lucerne, Switzerland, and currently at the University of Music in Hannover and at various workshops and master classes worldwide.

With his latest production, Frank Bungarten breaks new ground in the history of guitar recordings. For the first time—and after 150 years—the music of Johann Kaspar Mertz, the last of the great Viennese virtuosos, comes alive again on the spectacular original instrument.
