Carlos Bonell was born in London of Spanish parents and studied at the Royal College of Music with John Williams where he was appointed the youngest-ever professor.  He gained prominence through his Decca recording of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, which has been repeatedly singled out as the finest version available.

Over the past few years Carlos has been helping Sir Paul McCartney in editing, notating and recording a concerto he is composing for guitar and orchestra.

Carlos’ discography includes more than 20 CD and DVD recordings. His 2012 album Magical Mystery Guitar Tour went to number one on the UK classical iTunes charts.

In 2018 Carlos spent time in the studio recording music for the UK TV series Endeavour (the young Inspector Morse). Carlos also recorded the guitar music and theme with orchestra for the original Inspector Morse series – 30 years ago!

Recent album releases include Once We Moved Like the Wind with Brad Richter inthe first guitar recording of music from The Piano by Michael Nyman, and a compilation of favourite guitar music called Guitar Magic.
