Mr. Tsiboulski’s formative studies were with the revered Australian Timothy Kain. Periods of mentorship with Angelo Gilardino (Italy), Carlo Barone (France), David Leisner (USA), and Carlos Bonell (UK) have proven deeply influential, as have master classes with Leo Brouwer, John Williams and David Russell. Extended residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada gave him the opportunity to perform with leading instrumentalists such as Edgar Meyer (bass) and Frederieke Saeijs (violin).
Between 2005 and 2008, Mr. Tsiboulski was based at the University of Texas at Austin as Australian – American Fulbright Scholar in the Visual and Performing Arts. Recently returned to Australia, he is pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy degree through the University of Adelaide, while maintaining a busy schedule of performances and musical collaborations.
He is winner of seven international guitar competitions, including Tokyo in 2006, and he is three-time finalist in the Guitar Foundation of American International Concert Artist Competition, the most sought-after award in the field.
In 2010 he recorded a CD of Australian Guitar Works for Naxos records and most recently the Four Sonatas of Manuel Ponce, also recorded for Naxos.
Melbourne newspaper, The Age, described Mr. Tsiboulski’s concert as “a fine exhibition of responsive virtuosity”.
His recording of Leo Brouwer’s Sonata was hailed by Classical Guitar (UK) as “a towering performance of this monumental work.”
Mike Greenberg of the San Antonio Express News (US) wrote, “It would be hard to imagine a more moving performance of John Dowland’s “Lachrimae Pavan” of 1604. Tsiboulski wove gently billowing phrases into a testament of grief, … producing a beautiful, transparent, lute-like sound”.
