"…Remarkable musicianship and a world of technique... simply and consistently—awesome."
Los Angeles Times

The legendary Manuel Barrueco is widely recognized as one of the most important guitarists of our time. His international tours have taken him to some of the most celebrated musical centers in the world, including the Royal Albert Hall in London and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and he has appeared with such prestigious ensembles as the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Boston Symphony. In 2007 Barrueco received a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance for his Solo Piazzolla. He is also the recipient of the United States Artist Fontanals Fellowship for Artistic Excellence.
