Virginia Luque plays classical and flamenco music in a Spanish romantic style, combining extraordinary technical virtuosity, with beautiful tone and musicianship. She recently recorded Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with the London Symphony Orchestra, at Abbey Road Studios. She’s also been awarded first prize at several international competitions, including the Manuel de Falla Competition for Classical Guitar in Granada, Spain, and has received the Lincoln Center Scholarship among other awards.

Virginia’s concerto performances have included the Concierto de Aranjuez with the New York Virtuosi Orchestra, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, the North Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Riverside Symphony, the Seoul Symphony Orchestra, the Izmir Symphony Orchestra, and the Antalya Symphony Orchestra – and she has premiered her own concerto with the Alexandria Symphony.

A native of Algeciras (Cadiz), Spain, Virginia began playing the guitar when she was four years old, began formal training at the age of six, and gave her first concert at the age of seven. After hearing her play, Ms. Luque was invited by the legendary Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia to study privately with him.
