Juan Manuel CañizaresGUITAR
Guitarist and composer Cañizares is one of the most important and influential flamenco artists worldwide, who is just as comfortable with classical repertoire as with his own compositions.
Cañizares’ career spans four decades. He is the first and only flamenco guitarist to have been invited to perform with the Berliner Philharmoniker, with which he played the Concierto de Aranjuez under Sir Simon Rattle in Madrid’s Teatro Real. He has performed with the main orchestras worldwide, including Staatskapelle Dresden, NHK Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta y Coro Nacionales de España and Orquestra Sinfónica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya.
Cañizares has won many prestigious awards, including ‘Premio Nacional de Guitarra’ (1982), ‘Premio de la Música’ (2008), and ‘Premio Flamenco Hoy’ (2000, 2011, 2013). For ten years Cañizares was a close collaborator of Paco de Lucía, and he has also worked with many other leading artists – Enrique Morente, Camarón de la Isla, Serrat, Alejandro Sanz, Mauricio Sotelo, Leo Brouwer, John Paul Jones and Peter Gabriel, among others.
Cañizares’ work as a composer includes works for the Spanish National Ballet Company and soundtracks for several movies. He has participated in over 100 albums and has published 15 albums as main artist.
At the latest edition of the Spanish MIN awards for independent music held in March, his disc El Mito de la Caverna won the prize for the best flamenco album of the year, in recognition of his creativity, expressiveness and originality.
