Widely regarded as one of the most important classical guitarists in history, Jorge Caballero is the youngest musician and only guitarist to win the prestigious Naumburg International Competition Award. A native of Lima, Peru, Mr. Caballero has performed as a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the New York Chamber Symphony and the Presidential Symphony of Ankara, Turkey, among others. His US recital appearances include New York’s Alice Tully Hall and Metropolitan Museum of Art, Washington’s Library of Congress, San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts and Los Angeles’s Da Camera Society. Internationally he has given recitals in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Mr. Caballero is renowned for his historic recordings including Antonín Dvorâk’s “New World” Symphony transcribed for solo guitar, and Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition”, making him one of only two guitarists in history to perform and record these pieces. His Musical Heritage CD of Bach Cello Suites, was highly praised by critics, drawing comparisons to Casals, Rostropovich and Segovia. Mr. Caballero was given the great distinction of being asked to perform on a 1940 Hauser I guitar (formerly played by Julian Bream) in three videos produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In 2018 he will be releasing a new album through the Brazilian label Guitar Coop, featuring his arrangements of works by Isaac Albéniz.
