Described as 'a player destined for future glories' (Classical Guitar Magazine) Morgan Szymanski has been selected as 'one to watch' by Gramophone Magazine and the BBC Music Magazine.

Born in Mexico City in 1979, Morgan Szymanski started playing the guitar at the age of six. Early studies at the National Music School (Mexico) and the Edinburgh Music School led to a scholarship to study under Carlos Bonell and Gary Ryan and the Royal College of Music in London, graduating with first class honours.

In 2009, aged 21, Adam Walker was appointed principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and received the 'Outstanding Young Artist Award' at the MIDEM Classique Awards in Cannes and went on to win a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award.

As a soloist Adam has appeared with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Solistes Européen, Vienna Chamber, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. Concert appearances include Wigmore Hall with Angela Hewitt, LSO St. Lukes (broadcast by BBC Radio 3), City of London and Festspiele Mecklenburg Vorpommern. He regularly appears as guest principal with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
