Pablo Sáinz-Villegas has been acclaimed by the international press as the successor of Andrés Segovia and as an ambassador of Spanish culture in the world. Since his debut with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos at the Lincoln Center, he has played in more than 40 countries and has been invited to play with orchestras such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Chicago Symphony, the Israel Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the National Orchestra of Spain, making him a benchmark for the symphonic guitar.
Plácido Domingo has described him as “the master of the guitar”, and he has had the privilege of recording his new duo album with Domingo. His “virtuosic playing characterized by irresistible exuberance” (“The New York Times”) make him one of the soloists most acclaimed by prestigious directors, orchestras and festivals. Pablo Sáinz-Villegas has already appeared on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including Carnegie Hall in New York, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow, the Musikverein in Vienna and the National Arts Centre in Beijing. The success of his performances has translated into repeated invitations from directors such as Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Carlos Kalmar, Juanjo Mena and Alondra de la Parra. As a regular guest in concerts organised by institutions and businesses, he has also had the privilege of playing before members of the Spanish Royal Family as well as other heads of state and international leaders.
