A rising star of the classical guitar Jack Hancher was described by Gendai Guitar Magazine as a “poet and a painter, colouring sounds out of the guitar as if his imagination and the guitar were one”. In 2022, he won the prestigious Gold Medal of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition, becoming just the third guitarist to win the award.

His programme encompasses an enticing range of music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century including hauntingly beautiful pieces by John Dowland, iconic arrangements of works by J.S. Bach, Ravel’s ever popular Pavane pour une Infante Défunte, as well as two works by 20th Century Spanish composer Antonio José.
