CLASSICAL GUITARIST & GUITAR TEACHER
“Passionate and masterful guitar playing”
Nico Silva is an outstanding artist and one of the leading guitarists of his generation.
Born in Chile and living in Germany, he inspires with his concerts in Latin America and Europe and casts every audience under his spell.
He imparts his broad knowledge and many years of experience to young talents and music lovers individually and with great eagerness.
“The first time I heard Nicolás Silva Apiolaza, I was completely amazed by his immaculate sound and musical imagination. He is not only a very refined solo guitarist but also a generous chamber music partner whom I had the privilege to play with in a guitar quartet. It was a great experience to work with such an amazing musician!”
“Nicolás Silva Apiolaza is a guitarist of tremendous musical gravity and his play is equally colorful as virtuoso. As a teacher, he is dedicated and enthusiastic.”
“I am sure that Nicolás will be one of the big names of classical guitar. To me, it is always a great joy to play alongside him, not just because of his musical talent but also because of the person he is.”
“Nicolás is a great inspiration to me, not only as a guitarist and artist but also as a person. Due to my private lessons under his guidance, my musical abilities were able to progress much further than with my lessons at the University of Music. In the past two years, he has shaped my musical progress considerably.”
“Nicolás Silva is an artist who stands for art of high quality. Over the years, I was able to witness his unique musical development, during which he was able to acquire a unique power of musical persuasion. I admire his professional work as much as his expressive contribution which is part of his nature and natural talent. A true artist at heart!”
“For his last piece, Silva played the “Tonada por Despedida” of his fellow-country men Juan Antonio Sánchez. He was able to convey both, the composition’s pain of despair and joy of hope, marvelously.”
