Howard Lutwak, a classical guitarist born in Hollywood, California in 1956, began playing
guitar when he was eight, and has performed both as a soloist and in ensembles. He studied
guitar under Ronald Purcell at California State University, Northridge, Frederick Noad at
the Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts, John Duarte at the Cannington International
Guitar Summer School, and in master classes with Carlos Barbosa-Lima and Manuel Barrueco.
Lutwak has recorded professionally, appearing on recordings including Songs of Angels, Caro Mio Ben, and Generation to Generation, the last of which includes arrangements
of traditional, folk, and modern Jewish, Yiddish, and Israeli songs, reflecting Lutwak's
interest in bringing music of the Jewish tradition to a broader audience.
