Volker Höh is one of the most versatile German guitarists. As a soloist, with orchestras and in chamber-music groups he performs on a regular basis on international and festival stages, often in the function of cultural ambassador for the Goethe Institute. His CD productions were awarded prizes by specialized critics. They show stylistic diversity and varied sound-aesthetics. Like his concert programmes they follow a theme line and present contemporary music as well as the classical repertoire with historical instruments and Spanish/Latin-American music. Regular radio and TV recordings are documents of his artistic position as well as the many works by well-known composers dedicated to him. Höh makes part of CD and film productions with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductors such as Michael Gielen, Eliahu Inbal, Dmitrij Kitajenko and Marcello Viotti. Volker Höh studied at the Academies of Koblenz and Münster. Further studies with Julian Bream, Leo Brouwer, Alberto Ponce, José Tomas and the pianist György Sebök followed. He has been distinguished with many grants and other forms of sponsorship. The guitar-ensemble "cantomano", initiated by him, has won prizes on national and international level. Besides teaching posts at the University of Koblenz and the Music-Grammar-School of Rheinland-Pfalz (Montabaur) he works as editor and author for publishers and specialized magazines as well as jury-member and teacher at international competitions and festivals.
