CHARLES MOKOTOFF holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in guitar performance from Syracuse University and Ithaca College, respectively. He has served on the faculties of numerous colleges and universities in New York and the New England area as a lecturer in classical guitar and lute.

Prior to settling in the Washington, DC area in 1991, Mr. Mokotoff made his home in New England where he was widely recognized as an active guitarist and lutenist. During that period his career culminated with two Far East tours and a well-received New York City debut at Carnegie Hall in 1987. Solo and ensemble recitals over the past few seasons have centered around the Mid-Atlantic states, but include performances in Chicago, Boston, and most recently two performances at the Lincoln Center Performing Arts Library in New York City.

Classical Guitar Magazine (U.K.) has called his playing, “truly monumental” as well as “engaging and rhapsodic”. ClassicalGuitarMusic.org has written that his playing shows “a mix of strong tone, pianistic at times, but also capable of beautiful legato phrasing and a natural feel for forward movement." Earlier in his career, Mr. Mokotoff was described by the New York Times as “exceptional among debutantes...a thoughtful, gentlemanly artist, technically fastidious and able to coax a range of sounds from his instrument.”

Traditional Repertoire

Classical guitar solos by Mozart, Albeniz, Bach, Morel, Sojo, O'Carolan, Pujol, Mendelssohn, Granados and others

Also available in duo with lutenist and guitarist John Armato playing 16th Century solos and duets for two lutes and duo guitar music from the Baroque to the present day
