聲gel Cabrera

Born in Guadalajara, Spain, in November 1977, Angel Cabrera began to improvise on the piano from a very early age, encouraged by his father who played various instruments by ear. Indeed, this was how Cabrera came to develop his affinity with and love for music, and what led him to begin his piano training at the Music Conservatory under Esther Zillarbide. Subsequently, he studied under maestros of the calibre of Fernando Puchol, Luis Rego, Galina Eguiazarova, M嫫ta Guly嫳, Boris Bloch and Aldo Ciccolini.

At a later stage, he had the honour of working side by side for ten years with the great Finnish baritone, Tom Krause, with whom he discovered a new universe of sound. Through their philosophy of life and way of understanding music, Tom Krause and Aldo Ciccolini became his greatest artistic and personal influence.

Cabrera shows himself to be a deeply passionate artist possessed of an exceptional diversity of touch, which enables him to play the most complex works with an astounding facility. His performances, brimming with poetic expression and incomparable technical control, make for a fascinating listening experience. "聲gel Cabrera transports us to some imaginary childhood planet with Debussy's "Deux Arabesques", a repertoire that he plays with absolute perfection, breathing the very air of the music and making it breathe..." says the La Nueva Espa鎙 newspaper, to which Ine Noticias adds, an exquisite taste and outstanding technique and Horizons states, 聲gel Cabrera, more than anybody else, knows how to communicate this powerful and creative spirit, with an artistic vision swathed in candour and hope".

Cabrera is also an enthusiastic and committed chamber musician who collaborates with leading artists such as Iwona Sobotka, Teresa Berganza, Helen Donath, Manuel Cid, Francisco Corujo, Manuel Lanza and soloists of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Berlin Ensemble, performing at some of the most prestigious concert venues around the world.

In addition to Cabrera's many live recordings for RNE (Spanish National Radio), RTVE (Spanish Radio & Television), Radio France and Canal Internacional, recording projects meriting special mention include his Songs of Paolo Tosti with Francisco Corujo, and Fr嶮廨ic Chopin's complete song cycle with Iwona Sobotka, both released on the PlayClassics label.

Aside from the prizes won at the 1st Jos Iturbi International Music Competition of America, 16th Jos Iturbi International Piano Competition of Valencia and 9th Concours-Grieg International Piano Competition of Oslo, 聲gel Cabrera has also received awards for his performances of Spanish Music, Edvard Grieg and Fr嶮廨ic Chopin.
