John D. Muratore
Senior Lecturer, Classical Guitar
John Muratore has performed guitar soloist, chamber musician and concerto soloist throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Russia. He has appeared with numerous ensembles including Emmanuel Music, Alea III, the Spectrum Singers, Counterpoint and the Vermont Symphony. Mr. Muratore has been the featured soloist at the Academie Festival des Arcs, St. Petersurg (Russia) Chamber Concerts and the Atelier International Concert Series in Paris. He has worked closely with many composers to produce new solo and chamber works for the guitar, including Daniel Pinkham, Scott Wheeler, Larry Bell, Roger Zahab and Jon Appleton.
The Boston Globe has described him as “a fleet-fingered and musicianly performer” and has characterized his playing as…”unleashing so many different varieties of tone and color in quick succession…a kind of aural iridescence.” A recent review in The Boston Musical Intelligencer cited him as… “one of greater Boston’s most gifted guitar virtuosos [whose] broad range of repertoire is one his most valuable attributes". Mr. Muratore has often performed for live broadcasts on WGBH and VPR (National Public Radio), and has recorded for Arabesque, Albany and Pont Neuf recordings.
