Manuel Barrueco

Manuel Barrueco

“A major artist with remarkable musicianship and a world of technique... simply and consistently – awesome.”
Los Angeles Times
 
Barrueco is a mature artist at the height of his power. He is, for me, the most apollonian of players—his technique is absolute, his expression restrained but always moving, always in the finest of taste. There’s a rightness about his interpretations, a sense of the inevitable, that this is the way the music must go. He is consistently satisfying, always delivering musicianly performances, models for what the guitar should sound like.

Meng Su

Winner, Parkening International Guitar Competition

“With such facility as Ms. Su possesses, there should be no limit on what she can achieve...”
NY Classical Review
 
"What makes her playing so special is her control of sound—every note is important, every sound is shaped with love and exquisite taste. It’s not just her tone—it’s also her dynamics, articulation, the transparency or density of the sound, the attention to the functions of multiple voices."
American Record Guide (2017)
