Called “A masterly classical guitarist” by the New York Times, Jorge Caballero is the youngest musician and the only guitarist to win the Naumburg International Competition Award.  Born in Peru, Caballero has toured extensively throughout the world, and has been featured with such ensembles as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Orchestra of Saint Luke’s, the Iserlohn Guitar Symposium in Germany and the Great Performers Series in Washington, D.C. among others.  In his 92Y debut recital, Caballero presents a program of music spanning the eras from Bach to Rimsky-Korsakov to Albéniz and a world premiere of a work he composed himself, written as a love song for his wife, and which encrypts the letters of her name in musical pitches.
