"Manuel Barrueco's guitar recital at Alice Tully Hall was the work of not just a guitarist, but of a superior musician."
-New York Times

Grammy nominated Manuel Barrueco is internationally recognized as one of the most important guitarists of our time. His unique artistry has been continually described as that of a superb instrumentalist and a superior and elegant musician, possessing a seductive sound and uncommon lyrical gifts.

His career has been dedicated to bringing the guitar to the main musical centers of the world. During three decades of concertizing, he has performed across the United Sates from the New World Symphony in Miami to the Seattle Symphony, and from the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to New York’s Lincoln Center. He has appeared with such prestigious orchestras as the Philadelphia Orchestra and with the Boston Symphony under the direction of Seiji Ozawa, in the American Premiere of Toru’s Takemitsu’s To the Edge of Dream. In addition, he appears regularly with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and with San Francisco Performances.

His international tours have taken him to some of the most important musical centers in the world, and his recording catalogue includes over a dozen recordings for the EMI label. Recent CD releases include two recordings that feature the music of Astor Piazzolla: Grammy-nominated "Solo Piazzolla" (2007) as well as "Tango Sensations" (2008), a collaboration with the Cuarteto Latinoamericano that includes the music of Carlos Gustavino. These recordings are part of the exclusive Manuel Barrueco Collection on Tonar Music label.
