2016 MACCC Classical Guitar Master Class

Pablo Gómez
UNAM National School of Music

Original, distinctive, and unconventional, Pablo Gómez’s guitar is one of the most remarkable sounds of today's music scene. Decidedly different and away from all conventions, his repertoire includes various aesthetic tendencies: from classics of the twentieth century and contemporary pieces to works written expressly for him by renowned Mexican and international composers. His repertoire includes solo guitar; electro-acoustic music; duets with vocalist, percussion, and violin; and concerts with chamber ensembles and orchestras. This a musical diversity that has taken him to performances in concerts in the United States, Sweden, France, London, Germany, Austria, Spain , Canada, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Iceland and in several cities in Mexico.

He has shared the stage with world class performers, such as Susan Narucki, Christophe Desjardins, Steve Schick, Magnus Andersson, among others. He has been soloist with the Camerata de Las Americas, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Mexico City, the Orchestra of the University of Cincinnati, Carlos Chavez Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Fine Arts in Mexico City to name a few and has participated in various ensembles: The Contemporary Ensemble of Montreal (ECM)and the Kore Ensemble of Canada, the Ibero-American Ensemble of Madrid, the Latin American Quartet, Onix, Palimpsest Ensamble among others. He has performed in the Cervantino Festivals, Festival de México, Festival Internacional de Morelia as well as other dedicated to new music, including the Ferien Kurse für Neue Musik Darmsatadt, Radar, the Manuel Enriquez New Music Forum, the V Search Event in San Diego, and the Festival A Tempo in Caracas and Paris, among others.

Pablo Gómez began his musical studies at the (Ollin Yoliztli) School Introduction to Music and Dance with maestro Gerardo Carrillo. He received his professional education at the National School of Music at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) where he graduated with honors. He also had private studies with Federico Bañuelos. With the support of Mexico’s National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA), he attended a two-year specialization program in contemporary music in Stockholm, Sweden, with Magnus Andersson. He produced a CD Tañendo Recio, under the Quindecim label and has participated in various other professional recordings. Recently the label World Records produced the CD Miliou that includes a solo work perfumed by Gomez. In 2012 he received the “Interpreters with relevant Career” grant from Mexico’s National Fund for the Arts.

He currently teaches at UNAM’s National School of Music and is pursuing a doctoral degree at the University of California at San Diego.
