Multi-award winning Sasha Savaloni has performed recitals as a soloist throughout the UK and internationally. He won the prestigious Seville International Guitar Competition in 2018 and has also appeared with the RSNO and European Union Youth Orchestra.

For his Usher Hall concert he brings a selection of music from baroque Spain - Suite Española by Gaspar Sanz – to contemporary with a Shakespearean twist. Stuart MacRae’s Macbeth Sonata for Guitar, Ophelia…a haunted sonata by Phillip Houghton and Sasha’s own arrangements of music inspired by The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummer Night’s Dream bring music with a literary influence.
