One of today ́s most acclaimed young guitarists, Andrea González Caballero is described by Opera World Magazine as “the female voice of the Spanish guitar.” Caballero is a laureate of multiple prestigious international guitar competitions, receiving First Prize and Special Prize at the XL International Competition Fernando Sor (Rome) and First Prize at the XIII Alhambra International Guitar Competition (Valencia). She was the youngest guitarist to receive first prize at Valencia.

She has appeared at international festivals and concert series around the world. Recent highlights include performances at Palau de la Música in Barcelona, National Auditorium and Juan March Foundation in Madrid, as well as performances with Sinfonietta Ratingen and Neue Philharmonie Westfalen in Germany. Selected by the International Guitar Foundation of London to perform as soloist, she debuted at the London Guitar Festival, at King’s Cross in London and Sage Gateshead in Newcastle.

Caballero’s 2017 Naxos CD, which contains new guitar compositions as well as pieces by Britten, Albéniz and Tárrega, was received with great acclaim: “this album is a delicate, elegant and majestic musical word” (Melómanos Magazine).

She is currently a student of Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Institute of John Hopkins University.
