The recordings show a varied repertoire that ranges from lute music of the Renaissance to works of contemporary music for the guitar.

From 1989 to 1997 he was also guest professor at the Conservatoire Zürich and held many master classes in several European countries, the United States and Japan. He is also a member of the jury at important international competitions, including Paris, Munich, Brussels/Walcourt, Geneva and Vienna.

About the luthier: Daniel Friederich was born on January 16th in 1932. At the age of 23 years he built his first instrument (a copy of a Simplicio), because he wanted to learn to play the guitar. His guitar teacher Christian Aubin and the painter and guitar builder Robert Bouchet had a great influence on his work and Friederich developed their ideas further. For decades now, Friederich has been one of the world’s most important luthiers and his guitars are played all over the world.
Early in his career, he built some guitars with spruce top, but this changed in 1974 when he finally devoted himself mainly to guitars with cedar top (with only few exceptions that were built on special request. This guitar is one of the examples with a cedar top and is in very good condition. This guitar has a lot of strength and a rich tone of cedar and at the same time the clarity and sustain of spruce.
