STORY

"An unexpected rediscovery of a universe...We can only salute Gerard Cousins’ prowess for having been able to intensify Glass’s music with a new flame." Classica Magazine (France)

Gerard Cousins was the first guitarist to successfully create guitar versions of Philip Glass’s piano music and was invited to release his recording on Glass’s own record label - Orange Mountain Music. The album was featured on the front page of Apple Music and has currently been streamed well over a million times. Gerard followed this up with an EP of transcriptions of Grammy award winning choral composer Eric Whitacre which has also been received with great acclaim and has recently been playlisted on Classic FM.


France Musique and BBC Radio have dedicated whole programmes to Gerard's guitar playing. Gerard also appeared on TV as a finalist on Sky Arts ‘Guitar Star’. 


Gerard Cousins offers a classical guitar concert with a difference: His unique repertoire, audience interaction and sense of improvisation has seen him widen the appeal of the nylon strung guitar. 

His imaginative guitar arrangements of pieces by composers such as Philip Glass, Eric Whitacre and Arvo Part as well as his own compositions have seen his music spread to the mainstream.
