Who would have known having a European passport would be such a precious thing for anyone living in the UK? After a very busy summer I'm heading back to London. Highlights ahead include tours to Japan, Germany, Spain and Sweden, as well as a tour de force programme featuring the 12 studies by Villa-Lobos paired up with an illustrious colleague playing the Moments Musiceaux by Rachmaninov. I'm also looking forward to my guitar duo programme of legendary Spanish works by Sor, Albeniz, Granados and Rodrigo. And there's more chamber music on the horizon still. As my first generation of aspiring young guitar professionals are hitting the colleges, I am excited to attend to the next wave as well as a handful of exceptional little ones... I am very proud of this little legacy on the rising! Good year for Martin Fogel! I would like to think it's pride, rather than conceit, when I say: Watch this space... ... See MoreSee Less

Martin Fogel receives glowing comment in the fantastic review of the album “Essence of Violin”, where he accompanies violinist Magdalena Filipczak:

“Two movements from Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango sound suitably idiomatic, and they’re beautifully accompanied by guitarist Martin Fogel. He deserves a disc to himself; the veiled intro to “Café 1930” is exquisite.”
theArtsdesk.com

The latest CD, EQUINOX – Complete Works for solo guitar by Toru Takemitsu – receives great reviews in CD Journal, JAPAN:

“This is a ‘meeting’ between musician and composer – an embodiment of ‘Equinox’ in all its aspects, taking into account the works, the performance, the cultural background and the time and place. This is the complete works for solo guitar by Toru Takemitsu, performed by a Swedish genius. The clear, beautiful sounds of the performance conveys “modernity” as full of intrinsic warmth.”
CD Journal, Japan

…and in Classical Music, UK:

“Swedish guitarist Fogel is an admirable exponent of the accessible music Toru Takemitsu wrote for guitar. He allies rich, smooth colour with crisp phrasing… this collection exudes easy charm”
