Biography

The marked personality on stage and the musical sensibility of Alejandro Aparicio make that the audience could never remain indifferent after his concerts. It is created a very special atmosphere in every one of his performances mainly because of the intimacy of his guitar and his interpretive character. The passion for the Spanish music, specially commits him to that repertoire, becoming one of his fundamental basis as a musician and guitar player.

His concert career leads him to perform as solo player in Belgium, Netherlands and throughout Spain. He offers recitals at many places as Andalusian Musical Documentation Centre, Palace of Charles V in the Alhambra, music serie Parkstraat Gemeente or II Music Festival “Villa de Magán”, among many others. In the last season he got lent the Antonio de Torres guitar from 1883, the Stradivarius of the guitar, to give two concerts. He has also been invited to perform as a soloist with different ensembles as Zuiderwind or FIMA Orchestra.

Alejandro was born in Almería, Andalusia. He enters at conservatory of that city when he is 9 years old, largely influenced by his aunt, who gets him interested in music from an early age. He studies in Almería for 10 years with José Samuel Roque, who settles the foundations of the musician he is at this moment. Afterwards, he enters at Real Conservatorio Superior de Música of Madrid, where he gets the Bachelor in Guitar. Later he moves to the Netherlands where he becomes a member of the prestigious guitarist Carlo Marchione class. After two years of musical maturity, he gains the Master of Music at the Maastricht Academy of Music. Besides, since an early age, he balances regular lessons with masterclasses of great guitarists, Manuel Barrueco or David Russell among them.

His commitment to the Spanish music is shown not only on the performance of his ample repertoire, but also that he is looking for new compositions for guitar made by Spanish composers. For that reason, he works closely with composer Fernando Javier Carmona Arana, from whom he has premiered many of his works, among them the Concerto for guitar and orchestra “Al Alba la Mar”. He has also premiered pieces by other composers, like Christiaan Janssen.

Currently, he balances guitar teaching with his concert career from his home in Spain.

Alejandro Aparicio performs with an Antonio Marín guitar.
