Winner of numerous international competitions and named as ‘Classical Guitar Revelation 2017’ by Guitare Classique magazine, Johan Smith has been invited to perform as a soloist at renowned festivals, and on international concert tours and radio shows. His particular interest in contemporary music has led him to collaborate with several composers including Josquin Schwizgebel and Arnaud Fillion, who dedicated his Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra, created in Budapest in 2019, to the guitarist.
Born in 1990 in Geneva, Smith holds postgraduate degrees from the University of Lausanne, where he studied performance with professor Dagoberto Linhares. In addition to his activity as a guitar teacher, he also founded the extreme metal band Stortregn, with whom he has already recorded five albums and toured the world since 2005. Johan Smith plays on Savarez Strings.
