Album Notes
In this album, guitarist Tariq Harb explores the Fernando Sor (1778-1839) classical guitar studies complied by the great Spanish guitar legend Andrés Segovia (1893-1987). Segovia chose twenty of his favourite Sor studies to publish and placed them in order of difficulty, length, musical and technical content. These studies are very charming and musical; guitarists nowadays consider them suitable for the concert stage. From an educational standpoint, they serve their purpose well by providing a comprehensive pedagogical bundle of technical and musical tools for the developing guitarist, as well as for the established performer as they do offer exciting challenges for each performance level. All in all, this album is a journey through the musical mind of one of the most influential and successful classical guitar composers of all time!

Tariq Harb's Biography:
Winner of both the First Prize and the Audience Choice Award in the Barrios WorldWideWeb Competition 2011, First-Prize winner in the Montréal International Classical Guitar Competition 2011, as well as the 'Governor of Tokyo' prize winner in the Tokyo 55th International Classical Guitar Competition, Tariq Harb is quickly establishing himself as one of the leading classical guitarists of his generation. Harb's "well-deserved acclaim complements the virtuosity and freshness with which he is known to perform." (Savino Music) His playing demonstrates "not just his flawless technique but also his refined taste and a great, innate sense for truly beautiful interpretation." (The Jordan Times) Chosen as a CBC Radio NEXT! artist in 2013, Harb was celebrated as "Canada's next classical guitar superstar" and was showcased performing on radio and live at the Glenn Gould studios in Toronto, Canada.

Harb's past concert appearances in North America, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Asia, are highlighted by performances in prestigious halls such as the 2000 year-old Roman Amphitheatre in Jerash, Jordan, the Bunka Kaikan concert hall in Tokyo, Japan, the world-famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Edinburgh's International Conference Centre (TEDGlobal) in the UK, and the illustrious Cairo Opera House in Egypt. Moreover, Harb performed and gave masterclasses in major guitar festivals including the Sauble Beach Guitar Festival and the Guitar Foundation of America Convention and Competition. He recently received an ‘Honorary Membership’ from the Arab Culture Centre in Jordan, recognizing his efforts and contributions to the arts both in the Arab world and abroad. His debut solo album “A Guitar Through the Eras” was released in June 2013.

A Jordanian-Canadian with Palestinian roots, Harb came to Canada to commence university studies. He studied classical guitar with Roddy Ellias, Patrick Kearney, Jerome Ducharme, Dr. Garry Antonio and Dr. Jeffrey McFadden, and violin with Clemens Merkel of the Bozzini Quartet and Claude Gelineau. He also participated in masterclasses run by Lorenzo Micheli, Jason Vieaux, Pavel Steidl, Rémi Boucher, and Manuel Barrueco. Harb holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Toronto, a Masters in Performance degree from McGill University, and Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce degrees from Concordia University. Harb joined Concordia University's Music Department as a faculty member in Fall 2015. Tariq Harb is a Savarez and a LaBella Strings Artist.
