Biography

Carlos Bonell has enjoyed an immensely varied career. His activities include TV, Film and CD recordings, international tours, concertos with the major orchestras and concerts with his own Ensemble.

Carlos Bonell’s guitar playing can be heard on the recent Hollywood films ‘City of Angels’ and ‘The Honest Courtesan’ and on the TV films ‘Inspector Morse’ and ‘The Politician’s Wife’.

Carlos Bonell gained prominence in 1981 through his recording for Decca of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Charles Dutoit. It was hailed as a “magnificent triumph” by Classical Music Magazine, UK, and awarded a coveted rosette by the Penguin CD guide. Since that time it has been repeatedly singled out as the finest version available.

In addition to his Decca recordings Carlos Bonell has recorded for EMI, ASV, CBS and Upbeat Classics. At the beginning of his recording career his 1976 CBS recording with John Williams and Friends received a Grammy nomination, while his latest solo album release (‘The Private Collection’ Upbeat Classics 1998) was described as “a masterclass in magic” by the BBC Music Magazine. His 1997 album ‘The Sea in Spring’ was chosen as Pick of the Week by Classic FM. The 2000 album ‘Kinkachoo, I love you. Millennium Guitar, the first 1000 years’ is a unique musical journey through 1000 years of musical history, containing various first recordings.
