Marcus Tardelli, guitar

  • Kerrytown Concert House 415 North 4th Avenue Ann Arbor, MI, 48104 United States (map)

Marcus Tardelli is one of the most remarkable guitarists to emerge from Brazil. From a very young age, he was deeply interested in music and drawn particularly to orchestral works. The guitar, however, was the only instrument available to him, so he developed ways to play the orchestral harmonies he loved, and ultimately created a new school of thought in guitar technique.

"Even if Guinga never pronounced that Marcus Tardelli was the 'greatest acoustic guitar player that Brazil has produced in history,' the musical evidence on Unha e Carne would certainly put him on a pedestal right next to Egberto Gismonti, Sérgio and Odair Assad. In fact, based on technique, expression, intonation and dynamics, there is a solid case for ranking Tardelli very close to guitarists such as Julian Bream and, perhaps, even to Andrés Segovia." - RAUL D'GAMA ROSE, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“Marcus Tardelli has an ear that is directly connected to his soul, capable of recognizing the universe of a composer in all its depth, and reproducing it in all its fullness.” - PAULO SALES, FOLHA DA BAHIA (BRAZIL)

"Marcus Tardelli is the most important acoustic guitar player of our time. He is the next step for the guitar." - GENIL CASTRO, BRAZILIAN GUITARIST
