Performances

Maestro Arizaga has had a long and illustrious career as a performer, recording artist and music educator. Maestro Arizaga’s mastery of the Spanish Guitar indicates devotion and respect for this art form, which dates back centuries. His live concert repertoire includes dramatic and brilliantly executed performances of Spanish guitar pieces as well as expressive arrangements and extraordinary performances of popular adult contemporary selections. Auditorio_Leon_de_GreiffAfter attending California Institute of the Arts, Maestro Arizaga went on to play master classes with George Sakellario, Julian Bream, Pepe and Angel Romero, and flamenco guitarist Mario Escudero. He also studied privately with Pepe Romero of Los Romeros – “Royal Family of the Guitar.” He has a reputation as an inspiring teacher and is an avid musical scholar. In solo performance, Maestro Arizaga has achieved the resonant and lyrical touch that coaxes from his handmade custom Spanish guitar an authentic and breathtaking sound. Dazzling execution of challenging fingerwork graces every song in his repertoire. The range of nuance he elicits from the guitar demonstrates virtuosic technique and intuitive insight into the spirit of the music that is truly breath taking to experience. Maestro Arizaga goes beyond mere technical excellence. Through every brilliant musical showstopper breathes the ineffable angst of the Spanish soul.
