Barcelona cultural’s heritage
Born in Barcelona, Manuel González has dedicated his life to the Spanish guitar, developing his unique style under the supervision of friends and masters like José Tomás and Eduardo Sainz de la Maza, the Grammy-winner David Russell and the Cuban maestro Manuel Barrueco.
His interpretations are considered a unique experience, and some of them, such as the two performances at the United Nations headquarters in New York, were praised by newspapers like The New York Times, El País and the magazine Royal Classics, receiving excellent critics.
Among his legacies, Manuel González was one of the founders of the Luthier school, in Barcelona, where, after decades of activities, has taught generations of musicians. He also had the honour of being the first guitar soloist in 50 years to play at the Palau de la Música Catalana, later being awarded the prize “Generalitat of Catalunya”, given by the Government of Catalonia region.
