The American born German  Franz Halász stands in the forefront of outstanding artists in the guitar field. Judged by Soundboard Magazine in his New York debut as "simply electrifying!"and by Gramophone's critic as "the most remarkable guitarist in many years", Franz Halász began his career in 1993, winning first prizes at the „Andres Segovia Competition“ in Spain and the „Seto Ohashi“ Competition in Japan. 

In his debut CD with spanish guitar music he was praised by the prestigious critic Colin Cooper:"For the modern spanish repertoire, Franz Halász is unsurpassed, able to deliver Turina's message as no one ever has before - no, not even the great Segovia."

A  guest performer at major festivals and events all over the world, Franz Halasz is holding  since 2010  the  Chair of Guitar at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich .
