Guitarist Frank Koonce is acclaimed as a performer, teacher, and writer. His creative work includes an authoritative guitar edition of Bach's solo lute works and the world-premiere recording in English of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's "Platero and I" for narrator and guitar. Mr. Koonce directed the guitar program at Arizona State University from 1978-2018.
Koonce immediately assures the listener . . . that he is a player of refined and well developed tone and clean technique. . . . an ideal performance. . . . I admire the professionalism which has created the necessary sense of easiness about the performance.
