Festival appearances have included The Aspen Music Festival, The London International Guitar Festival and the Walnut Valley Festival, where he won the National Finger-picking Championship. Brad is also an accomplished composer. In addition to his collections of concert music for solo guitar (published by Mel Bay and GSP) Brad is an avid composer of chamber music. He is a winner of the International Composers Guild Competition, he wrote and performed a score for the Emmy award winning PBS television series, The Desert Speaks and he is regularly featured on NPRs Performance Today as a soloist and with his duo partner cellist Viktor Uzur. Brad's critically acclaimed solo CD: A Whisper in the Desert is available from Acoustic Music Records. Teaching and writing music for young guitarists has long been a passion of Brads. He has taught at the Sherwood Conservatory of Music in Chicago and the University of Arizona, given workshops around the United States since 1995 and he is the founder and Artistic Director of Lead Guitar, a not-for-profit organization that establishes guitar programs in schools with large populations of at-risk kids. Brad lives in Tucson, Arizona with his wife Kerstin and sons Noah and Luca.
QUOTES

"Awesome. If there was just one word I could use to describe his performance: that would be it. Awesome. ...he brings something innovative to the world of the classical guitar and he does it unpretentiously with an air of coolness that makes the Fonze seem geeky. Richter has the tenacity to expand the repertoire of the classical guitar and present it not in an elitist way, but in a way that is down-to-earth and fun." — Oliver McGhie, Classical Guitar Magazine

"Richter's music has that genuinely arresting quality of immediate appeal, music of a clibre that you simply cannot ignore." — Brian Capleton, Royal College of Music Magazine

"...like Franz Liszt was doing with the piano, Brad Richter utilizes techniques of his own invention and brings them into a frame work that works so beautifully." — George Shangrow, KING FM

"...Brad Richter is perhaps the best and most creative guitarist of the new generation." — Concertina, Italy

"... clever and inventive composer...I wanted to hear more." — Steve Marsh, Classical Guitar Magazine
