His guitar has a high and low string, compared to the traditional six-string guitar.
He has produced a series of critically acclaimed recordings of works by Bach, Haydn, and Brahms, along with his own arrangements of folk tunes from various countries. He was formerly nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Solo Instrumental Album.
Admission is free to the public.
