Gerard Cousins has performed all over the world from Peru to Pakistan. His unique choice of repertoire includes his Welsh inspired original compositions & arrangements as well as works by contemporary composers such as Mark Anthony Turnage, John Tavener, Takashi Yoshimatsu and Hilary Tann. He combines his natural musicality and formidable technique with a remarkable singing quality to create a fresh and spontaneous approach to all the works he performs. His latest CD Hiraeth has been described by Classical Guitar Magazine as a must for all serious collectors of classical guitar recordings.
A youtube video of Eric Whitacre's 'This Marriage' described by the composer as "it's gorgeous, both the performance and the arrangement. We should publish it!"
Gerard is proud to endorse MJS guitars by French Luthier Godefroy Maruejouls. Together they are developing a new concept nylon strung guitar inspired by the Selmer-Maccaferi design.
