In 2014 Ekachai Jearakul (b. 1987) became the first Asian guitarist to win the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America Int’l Concert Artist Competition (GFA). Winner of numerous awards and an international artist, he has selected a recital that takes the listener on a journey from the baroque beauties of Weiss through 19th c. classics by Mertz and Legnani, concluding with three modern compositions influenced by jazz. This native son of Thailand’s dedication to musical development in classical guitar determined his being selected by the Thai Ministry of Culture to be a spokesman for the country’s domestic imitative, “Thai kids can do anything!”
