“It is truly fascinating how much temperament and emotion this only 20-year-old is able to put into his equally sensitive and impulsive guitar playing,
while with his nimble fingers he lets the notes on the six strings bubble along as refreshingly as the cascades of a refreshing waterfall in the gardens of the Royal Palace of Aranjuez”.

The guitarist Leonard Becker (*1999 in Deggendorf) is the winner of the Andres Segovia Competition 2021 in La Herradura (Spain). He released his debut CD on NAXOS in July 2021, presenting chamber music with guitar by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
In March 2019, Leonard won 1st prize at the international chamber music competition “Gerhard Vogt” for string quartet and guitar in Schweinfurt, Germany, together with a string quartet he assembled at the Munich Academy of Music. In November 2020, he was awarded 2nd prize at the Hannabach International Solo Guitar Competition in Augsburg.

Leonard Becker is currently studying at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich in the guitar class of Prof. Franz Halasz.
Leonard would like to establish with his music especially the concert guitar more in the classical music world and show people what unexpected abilities are in this instrument. Especially the combination of guitar with various other instruments is close to his heart. He is a big fan of the music of Steely Dan, Benjamin Britten and Franz Schubert.
