World class guitarist performs Romantic, Latin, Spanish and Baroque masterpieces


GUNTER HERBIG WAS BORN IN BRAZIL and grew up in Portugal and Germany. Influenced by such different cultures and aesthetic languages, Gunter has developed a highly personal, charismatic, and expressive style of playing and performance, which sets him well apart from his contemporaries. The balance of Brazilian sensuousness, Portuguese intense passion and German intellect and finesse are the hallmark of his playing. Gunter's dynamic and expressive sense of adventure has made him an audience favourite on the concert platform wherever he goes and has solicited universal praise by critics in the international music world.

Gunter is based in Wellington, NZ and combines a busy international performance schedule with a teaching position at Auckland University, where he lectures in classical guitar performance and chamber music. His best selling debut solo CD "HAUTURU – WHERE THE WINDS REST" was released in 2007 by Ode Records.

In 2009, Gunter released his second CD "PROSPERO DREAMING" with NZ guitar music by Douglas Lilburn and David Farquhar on the NAXOS label, the world's biggest classical music label. "PROSPERO DREAMING" opened as number one in the Radio New Zealand classical chart - a first for a New Zealand classical guitar CD ever!
