Grisha Goryachev In Concert

Location: 900 University Bay Dr, Madison, WI 53705, USA

MCGS is excited to host one of the world's most remarkable and explosive flamenco players at the beautiful Atrium Auditorium at The First Unitarian Society of Madison! Doors open at 7:00, with the concert beginning around 7:30.

Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity in both classical and flamenco styles.

Grisha is one of very few guitarists in the world who is reviving the tradition of solo flamenco guitar in a concert setting that was practiced by legendary flamenco masters such as Ramón Montoya and Sabicas. He creates his own interpretations of these masterpieces, using dynamics and tone colors usually associated with classical guitar. In May 2005 Grisha was awarded the prize for Best Performance of Spanish Music at the VI International Classical Guitar Competition "Julian Arcás" in Almería, Spain.

Grisha began playing guitar at the age of six, studying first with his father Dmitry, an acknowledged master teacher of the instrument. At nine years old, Grisha started his performing career as a child prodigy. His numerous performances in the most prestigious concert halls in the Soviet Union were highly praised.

Grisha received his Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he studied under famous guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk. Since his immigration to the United States in 1995, Grisha has toured extensively in the states and abroad as a performer, instructor, and judge for many prominent festivals and venues.
