Stephen Goss needs little introduction in classical guitar and music circles having written a large body of works for guitar, choir, chamber, and orchestra. He is currently Professor of Composition and Director of Research in the Department of Music and Media at the University of Surrey, UK, and also a Professor of Guitar at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He is the Director of the International Guitar Research Centre, which he founded with John Williams and Milton Mermikides in 2014

He was in Melbourne last week for a week long residency at Melbourne University working alongside Head of Guitar Ken Murray and the guitar students. Last Friday I caught up with Steve before the end of week concert presented by staff and student featuring Steve's works. 

We chat a bit about his writing for guitar and some interesting projects he has worked on.  Please enjoy my interview with Stephen Goss.
