ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Alec O'Leary's guitar playing is never less than superb" - Classical Guitar Magazine, USA.

"Throughout, O'Leary does full justice to the music and gives some very exciting and clever performances, the ultimate track - the excellent Dyens arrangement of the classic Felicidade - being the icing on the cake and making for a truly exhilarating conclusion to a very enjoyable programme." Steve Marsh, Classical Guitar Magazine, UK.

Alec O’ Leary (M.Mus., B.Mus., Dip. Inst. Teaching) is widely regarded as one of the foremost guitarists of his generation. Alec began playing guitar at an early age taught by both his father and grandfather. Subsequently Alec went on to study with Irish virtuoso John Feeley at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama where he attained his Masters Degree in performance. During this time he received tuition from some of the world’s most distinguished musicians including Manuel Barreuco, Scott Tennant, Sergio Assad and Roland Dyens. Alec has also studied in Naples with Maestro Aniello Desiderio aided by the Arts Council of Ireland. Alec is co-founder and director of one of Europe’s most prestigious guitar festivals, the Guitar Festival of Ireland. Along with a busy performing schedule, festival commitments and teaching posts, Alec is equally dedicated to making guitars with his father, world-renowned Irish luthier Michael J. O’Leary. He has performed many times on both national radio and television and along with performing as a soloist he very often appears as one half of the Moynihan/O’Leary Duo with distinguished Irish Soprano Deirdre Moynihan.

"Easily one of Ireland's most talented and accomplished classical guitarists" Hotpress.

"Alec is a highly accomplished guitarist with a very natural touch on the instrument. He has a refined and developed musical sensibility." John Feeley.
