About Christopher Mallett, guitar

Christopher Mallett is an American classical guitarist and educator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Soundboard Magazine has described him as "virtuosic," and he was dubbed a "trailblazer" by the St. Louis Dispatch.

His performances have taken him to some of America's finest concert halls, guitar societies, and festivals, including the Kravis Center in Palm Beach, Florida, The Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis, the 92nd St. Y in New York, the Guitar Foundation of America's Convention (GFA) in Indianapolis, the New York Guitar Society, the Austin Guitar Society, The Cleveland Guitar Society, and more. He also performed throughout Asia, with performances in Beijing, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
Mallett's work with Duo Noire has been called "truly pathbreaking" by All music, and their most recent album, Night Triptych, was named one of the best classical albums in 2018 by both All Music, and I Care If You Listen. Mallett has commissioned new works by over a dozen composers, including Clarice Assad, Gity Razaz, Gabriella Smith, Courtney Bryan, Javier Farias, Ray Lustig, Mary Kouyoumdjian, and more. Mallett recently recorded several videos of the music of 19th-century African American classical guitarist and civil rights activist Justin Holland for the Austin Marie Guitar Collection on period instruments.
