Starobin was the first guitarist to have been awarded Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Career Grant (1988); was honored by Peabody Conservatory with its "Distinguished Alumni Award" (1999); and was given with his wife, Becky Starobin(married, June 22, 1975), ASCAP's 'Deems Taylor Award' for their work with Bridge Records (2007).

[IMG] David Starobin, guitar
Bridge Records Management: David Starobin David Starobin classical guitarist David Starobin was recently called by "Soundboard" magazine "arguably the most influential American classical guitarist of the twentieth century. Starobin has performed these works throughout the world, collaborating with ensembles including The New York Philharmonic, National Symphony, Houston Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Danish Radio Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the Emerson and Guarneri Quartets. David Starobin began his guitar studies at age 7, with the Puerto Rican guitarist Manuel Gayol, later working with Albert Valdes Blain, and Aaron Shearer at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. While a student at Peabody, Starobin worked closely with pianist Leon Fleisher, and was a frequent participant in the Marlboro Music Festival. Between 1993 and 2004, Starobin was the chairman of the guitar department at the Manhattan School where he currently teaches. In 1981, David Starobin founded the record label, Bridge Records, Inc., which he served as President until 2005. Starobin's work for Bridge as performer, producer and executive producer has earned three Grammy awards and seventeen Grammy nominations. Selected press quotes: "David Starobin is the virtuoso of the contemporary classical guitar. Over the past 20 years or so around 300 pieces have been written for him, and he's recorded quite a few of them. Whatever the style, Starobin's playing is a joy; agile, expressive, and always golden-toned." -BBC Music Magazine "[David Starobin is] arguably the most influential American classical guitarist of the 20th Century" -Soundboard Magazine "David Starobin is the guitar world's leading champion of new music." -American Record Guide "If ever a guitarist deserved the title of 'virtuoso' David Starobin is one. This evening has to be among the most memorable I have ever had the pleasure of reviewing. David Starobin is among the truly individual and great players the instrument has." -Classical Guitar (London) "Starobin drew wonderfully rich and idiomatic sounds from the instrument, achieving bravura effects at breathtaking tempos. For originality and breadth, Starobin's program was a thing of beauty." -The New York Times "Starobin has grasped the authentic spirit, aided by his perfect instrumental technique. Here, the music acquires its truest meaning, exalting the quality of phrasing as it is rarely ever heard. Starobin's is a truly influential artistry, a great personality who does honor to both music and the guitar." -Il Fronimo (Milan) "David Starobin's interpretations are both sparkling and tender. Every note, every nuance, every gesture seems part of one clearly imagined vision. More than a virtuoso, Starobin is a champion for musical truth." -All Things Considered (National Public Radio) "Starobin evokes the virtuosity of Artur Schnabel's Beethoven."
