“Remember the name Rupert Boyd. While there may never be another classical guitarist  like Segovia, this young Australian left his audience with the impression that someday  there may not be the likes of him again, either.”

The Washington Post 

Rupert has been described by The  Washington Post as “truly evocative”, by Gramophone as “a very fine musician”, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard”. Based in New York, he has performed across four continents, from New York’s Carnegie Hall to festivals in Europe, China,  India, Nepal, the Philippines, New Zealand, and Australia.  Active as both a soloist and chamber musician, Rupert regularly performs  throughout the world as part of the Australian Guitar Duo with guitarist Jacob Cordover,  and in Boyd Meets Girl, with cellist Laura Metcalf. Rupert has five commercially released albums. His most recent solo CD, The Guitar  (Sono Luminus), was called “a must-have album of 2019” by This Is Classical Guitar, and received the following praise in The Weekend Australian: “Instantly one’s ears are pricked up by Boyd’s interpretive directness and a sparkling technique.”
