Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux is described by NPR as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation”.
Jason’s multiple appearances for San Francisco Performances, Caramoor Festival, Ravinia Festival, PCMS, 92Y, etc., have cemented his reputation as one of the world’s leading guitarists. Overseas performance venues include Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Seoul Arts Center, Shanghai Concert Hall, Sala Sao Paolo, and Teatro Colon. Vieaux has performed as soloist with over 100 orchestras, including Cleveland, Toronto, Houston, Nashville, and Orchestra of St. Luke’s, working with conductors such as Giancarlo Guererro, Jahja Ling, Gerard Schwarz, and Michael Stern.
Vieaux has a strong presence on radio and streaming services. In 2022, his long-awaited “Bach Volume 2: Works for Violin” was released in April on Azica Records to critical acclaim. “Shining Night”, a CD featuring his duo with violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, was released in May. His Sony Classical recording of Michael Fine’s “Concierto del Luna” for flute and guitar (with flutist Alexa Still) is yet another Spring release. Vieaux recently recorded Pat Metheny’s “Four Paths of Light”, a solo work dedicated to him by Pat, for Metheny’s 2021 album “Road To The Sun”.
Jason has performed world premieres from composers Jeff Beal, Avner Dorman, Vivian Fung, Pierre Jalbert, Jonathan Leshnoff, David Ludwig, Mark Mancina, Dan Visconti, and many more. Of his Grammy-winning 2014 solo album Play, HuffPost declared that Play is “part of the revitalized interest in the classical guitar.”
Vieaux’s regular collaborators include Escher String Quartet, Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, Grammy-nominated harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, accordion/bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro, and violinist Anne Akiko Meyers. He holds faculty positions at Curtis Institute of Music and Cleveland Institute of Music.
