A summer’s evening, on holiday on the island of Mallorca, Hugues Navez celebrates his ninth birthday and receives his first guitar as a fine present from his parents. It is love at first sight : he is fascinated by the endearing and expressive timbre of the instrument.

Today, trained by famous masters, he is an accomplished artist and one of the rare performers playing a ten-string guitar. He is currently the full Professor of the classical guitar class at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles (Royal Conservatory of Brussels) and he is the founder of the Brussels International Guitar Festival, the first annual event devoted to the guitar in the capital of Europe.

Over five continents his concerts are always crowned with outstanding success. His audiences are bowled over by the magnificent and powerful sound, sensitivity, virtuosity and quality of his performances, the originality and diversity of his programmes and his very warm-hearted contact with the public.
