Jose Antonio Escobar (b1973)

José Antonio Escobar is one of the most distinguished and versatile classical guitar soloists of his generation. He is especially known for the perfect balance he achieves between intense musical expression and a vast knowledge of various musical styles and periods. He was born in Santiago, Chile, where he graduated with top honours after studying at the Conservatory of Music, University of Chile. Immediately after graduating he continued his studies at the Hochschule für Musik in Augsburg, Germany. Under the influence of his first master, the lutenist Ernesto Quezada, he became deeply interested in early instruments of the guitar family. This motivated him to complete his studies by attending Early Music courses and masterclasses with renowned specialists such as Hopkinson Smith, Eduardo Egüez, and Juan Carlos Rivera. He combines his interest in early music with the contemporary, with particular attention to Chilean composers. He has been awarded some fifteen prizes in leading international guitar competitions, including the Francisco Tárrega (Spain), Alessandria (Italy), Alhambra (Spain), Guitar Foundation of America (USA), Julián Arcas (Spain), and Karl Scheit (Austria). He has appeared widely as a soloist with orchestra and in recital and has a number of successful recordings to his credit.
