Andrea Gonzalez Caballero has been described by Operaworld Magazine as “the female voice of the Spanish guitar.” She has been an award winner at numerous international guitar competitions, including First Prize and Special Prize at the XL International Competition F. Sor in Rome, and the XIII Alhambra International Guitar Competition in Valencia (Spain), at which she was the youngest guitarist to ever receive First Prize.
Gonzalez Caballero has appeared at international festivals and concert series around the world. Highlights include performances at Palau de la Música in Barcelona, the National Auditorium and Juan March Foundation in Madrid, and Sinfonietta Ratingen and Neue Philharmonie Westfalen in Germany. Selected by the International Guitar Foundation of London to perform as soloist in international music events such as the London Guitar Festival, she debuted in the UK with concerts at such venues as King’s Cross in London and Sage Gateshead in Newcastle.
Her 2017 CD for the Laureate Series on the internationally known Naxos label contains both the premieres of new guitar compositions and standard pieces of the classical guitar repertoire by master composers such as Benjamin Britten, Isaac Albéniz, and Francisco Tárrega.
Her career 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 enrolled in the graduate program at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, as a student of Manuel Barrueco.
