Emanuele Segre, the Italian guitarist, whom the Washington Post noted early as "a musician of immense promise" at his American debut, performs internationally in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Prague, Berlin, Salzburg, Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Rome, Warsaw, Seoul, etc.

As a soloist, he has appeared with Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists, the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Salvatore Accardo, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, I Solisti di Zagreb, the European Community Chamber Orchestra, the Slovakian Chamber Orchestra and the Suddeutsches Kammerorchester. He has also given his cooperation to the Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala. His chamber music activities include duo performances with Patrick Gallois.

He has participated in international festivals such as the Marlboro Festival (USA), the Bratislava Festival (Czechoslovakia), the "Semaines Musicales de Tours", the "Festival de Radio France et Montpellier" (France), the Bregenz Festival (Austria), the "Torino Settembre Musica" International Festival, and the "Settimane Musicali Internazionali di Stresa" (Italy).

Segre has won numerous competitions, including the East and West Artists Prize in New York in 1987, which allowed him to make his debut at Carnegie Recital Hall, and, in the same year, the Pro Musicis International Award in New York. In 1989 he was selected for the UNESCO International Rostrum of Young Performers.

Jean Francaix dedicated his Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra to Segre, which Segre has subsequently recorded for Wergo. He has recorded various other CDs with Claves, Amadeus, and other record companies.
