Gunter Herbig was born in Brazil and grew up in Portugal and Germany. Influenced by such different cultures and aesthetic languages, he has developed a highly personal, charismatic, and expressive style of playing and performance. The balance of Brazilian sensuousness, intense Portuguese passion and German intellect and finesse is the hallmark of his playing. Since moving to New Zealand in 1989 he has made numerous national concert tours and has a busy performance schedule which has taken him to South America, Central America, and Europe, where he appears as a soloist and chamber musician in concerts and festivals. He has performed on several live broadcasts on television and radio in New Zealand and Mexico and has recorded for a number of film scores and television documentaries.

He served as the Head of Classical Guitar and Chamber Music at the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington and now teaches Guitar at the School of Music at Auckland University but is based in Wellington.

In May 2009, Naxos, the world's largest classical music label released Gunter's second CD "Prospero Dreaming - New Zealand Guitar Music by Douglas Lilburn and David Farquhar" (Naxos 8.572185) which received a 5-star review from the NZ Herald.

Critics' voices:

(Hans Hofer, Coburger Tageblatt), January 2006:
"(Gunter Herbig) is an absolute master of his metier; he performed with dreamlike secure virtuosity, from breathed harmonics to fully realised orchestral flights of an entirely explored dynamic scale"

Ricardo from (France) about “Hauturu – Where the Winds Rest”, November 2007:
"His playing is incredible, how can you communicate such power with an instrument just made of wood and nylon strings?

...Fabulous, totally and extraordinarily fabulous."

William Dart, NZ Herald, about "Prospero Dreaming":
"Gunter Herbig is one of our finest guitarists... The essential character of much of the music on this CD comes from its sounding as if it might have been improvised on the spot. That Herbig has conveyed this impression, with no sacrifice of tonal beauty or structural logic, is a mark of his artistry." (Five stars)
