Concert guitarist and recording artist Alice Artzt, whom Guitar International Magazine has called “America’s best player,” made her solo concert debut in London in 1969. Since then critics in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas have unanimously acclaimed her performances as a soloist and in concertos with orchestra. In duo, and in The Alice Artzt Guitar Trio, she has also performed widely in Europe, North and South America, and Africa with a number of other well known musicians, among them Harpsichordist Igor Kipnis, British guitarist Raymond Burley, Irish guitarist John Feeley, American guitarist Gregg Nestor, Swiss guitarists Michel Rutscho and Daniel Zimmermann, and Brazilian guitarist Paulo Martelli. She has appeared on TV and radio throughout the world, and has been on the juries of many international guitar competitions (CAG, GFA, Toronto, Segovia NYU, Rodrigo, and Alessandria).
She studied guitar with Julian Bream, Ida Presti and Alexandre Lagoya, and composition with Darius Milhaud at Aspen Colorado. She graduated from Barnard College at Columbia University with a degree in musicology.
Alice Artzt has made 13 solo records (LP or CD), and one with The Alice Artzt Guitar Trio: “American Music of the Stage and Screen”. She has also written two books on guitar technique: “The Art of Practising” and “Rhythmic Mastery”, as well as many articles on music in various magazines.
She has taught in various schools, privately, and in master classes all over the world for the past 45 years. Presently she teaches privately in Princeton NJ
