Óscar Cáceres (Guitar, Arranger)

Born: 1928 - Montevideo, Uruguay

The Uruguayan guitarist, Óscar Cáceres, began serious study of music not until his adolescence. The guitar has been his constant companion since then. His passion for the music of the Renaissance led him to the exploration of the tabulatures of the early vihuelists and lutenists, and, in order to understand their music better, he learned the lute as well.

The music of the 18th and 19th centuries interests him for the evolution of the instrumental technique which revived interest in the guitar. 20th century music finds him attentive and interested servant. The South American premiers of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez and Heitor Villa-Lobos' Guitar Concerto were both given by Óscar Cáceres. In 1968 he was soloist of honour at the 10th International Concourse of the guitar in Paris. He has toured with great success all over Europe and South America where his rare talents have met with wide critical acclaim.
