Biography

Harry Sacksioni (born October 23, 1950) is a Dutch classical composer and guitar virtuoso. The peak of his fame was during the 1970s, some famous works of this period are “Meta Sequoia”, “Vensters” (“Windows”), “Elixir” and “Thee bij Tante Josephine” (“Tea with Aunt Josephine”). Sacksioni’s work is mainly instrumental, although some more recent works are accompanied. He frequently collaborated with other artists, most notably with Herman van Veen and Erik van der Wurff, but also with Raymond van het Groenewoud and Frank Boeijen and many others.

Sacksioni’s works are not commercially motivated, and as a result, he is not featured often in the mainstream media. His records appear under an independent label as a protest against the high prices of CDs. Sacksioni often uses several different guitars during a concert. When touring, he chooses instruments from his collection of acoustic and electric guitars to suit the venue and programme. He plays both 6 and 12-string guitars. An ununsual guitar of his is a hand-built double guitar: one half is electric and the other half is acoustic.

    Heb hem laatst nog in de lokale schouwburg zien spelen. Geweldig wat die man allemaal uit één gitaar haalt.
