Jose Manuel Dapena

José Manuel Dapena, Guitarist

Critics in the USA have noted Dapena as, "... a talented guitarist and an artistic proponent of the Spanish culture ..., a great Spanish master of the guitar ... a player with stirring musicality..., no doubt this Carnegie Hall debut was a success."

José Manuel made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2008 and at guitar festivals in Chicago, Columbia, Miami, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Smolensk, Kiev, Moscow, Québec, Calcutta, New Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Mexico, Bangkok, Tunisia, Tokyo, Shanghai and Wuhan.

Recently he recorded two CD´s: "Rincón mágico: Complete Turina works" and "Al pie de una guitarra: Guitar music inspired by poetry of Miguel Hernández".

Since Dapena first began studying the classical guitar he took classes in Spain with David Russell who had a great influence on his conception of the instrument and wrote: "He is an excellent player with a strong warm tone, agile technique and is able to bring magic to the musical phrases."

He appeared on the cover of Classical Guitar Magazine in London and interviewed by Gendai Guitar Magazine in Tokyo.
