Andrea González Caballero in Minnesota

Acclaimed Spanish guitarist Andrea González Caballero presents an evening of classical guitar music featuring some of Spain’s best-known composers.

Operaworld Magazine describes Andrea González Caballero as “the female voice of the Spanish guitar.” González Caballero is a laureate of multiple prestigious international guitar competitions, receiving First Prize and Special Prize at the XL International Competition F. Sor (Rome), and First Prize at the XIII Alhambra International Guitar Competition (Valencia), of which she was the youngest guitarist to receive first prize.

The BBC Music Magazine described her as one of today’s young rising stars of the classical guitar. She has appeared at international festivals and concert series around the world. Recent highlights include performances at Palau de la Música in Barcelona, National Auditorium and Juan March Foundation in Madrid, as well as performances with Sinfonietta Ratingen and Neue Philharmonie Westfalen in Germany. Selected by the International Guitar Foundation of London to perform as soloist in international music festivals such as the London Guitar Festival, she debuted in the U.K. offering concerts at venues like King’s Cross in London and Sage Gateshead in Newcastle.

Her 2017 Naxos CD, which contains the premiere of new guitar compositions and pieces by composers like B. Britten, Albébiz or Tárrega, was received with great acclaim: “this album is a delicate, elegant and majestic musical word” (Golden Melomano distinction by Melomano Magazine).

Andrea González Caballero has been supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), AIE (Society of Performing Artists of Spain) and the Provincial Council of Guipuzcoa to study at the Robert Schumann Musikhochschule in Düsseldorf (Germany), where she graduated with honors. She is currently a Manuel Barrueco student at Peabody Institute of John Hopkins University.
